Vision


“The dullness of our vision often hinders us from seeing the Lord’s presence in the relationships and situations we encounter every day.” (Dynamis 8/1/2018)

“The gap between those spiritual realities and our apparent situation—between the great vision of the Principle and the teacher’s everyday task—generally seems so great that only a steady feeling of the spirit of worship, a habit of delighted and humble adoration of the Perfect, a sturdy spiritual realism, can maintain our contact with the invisible Reality.” (Evelyn Underhill)

“The true vision of God consists in this, that the soul that looks up to God never ceases to desire Him.” (St. Gregory of Nyssa)

“The rule that governs my life is this: Anything that dims my vision of Christ, or takes away my taste for Bible study, or cramps my prayer life, or makes Christian work difficult, is wrong for me, and I must, as a Christian, turn away from it.” (J. Wilbur Chapman)

“God condescends whenever He is not seen as He is, but in the way one incapable of beholding Him is able to look upon Him. In this way God reveals Himself by accommodating what He reveals to the weakness of vision of those who behold Him.” (St. John Chrysostom)
