We must know Jesus as once tabernacling in the flesh, and dwelling among men as man, hallowing earthly spots with His presence, entering the dwellings of men, sitting with them at their tables and blessing their children, mingling in the scenes of domestic life, smiling upon our loves, sanctioning our marriages, healing our diseases, pitying our infirmities, weeping at our tombs, and consecrating our loneliness and solitude.

In a word, unvailing a bosom that is the perfect reflection of our own in all but its sinfulness. Oh, it is this fact of our Lord’s personality that brings Him so near to us, bends Him so closely with our individual history and which imparts to His presence and sympathy a reality and preciousness so inexpressibly great and endearing.

– Octavius Winslow
