Until You See It

J.I. Packer

“Ask God to show you how Jesus’ life, body and soul, was the only fully human life that has ever been lived, and keep looking at Jesus as you meet him in the Gospels until you can see it. Then the prospect of being like him – that and no less – will seem to you the noblest and most magnificent destiny possible. But until you see it – please believe me: I kid you not – there is no hope for you at all.”

– J.I. Packer, from Affirming The Apostles’ Creed (p. 142)
