Where The Wonder Is
Many think almost exclusively of what Christ has done for them, and overlook what He is doing in them; they look at redemption upon the divine side as a finished work, and fail to look at it upon the human side as a continuous work; they are so much taken up with the ideal of Christ dying upon the cross for their offenses as almost to forget that He is living in their hearts to guide, to inspire, to bless, to save.
– James M. Campbell, 1895
This is the Jesus we get to know, the mystery hidden for the ages, but now revealed to us, received by us, and now in us—Christ in you. What He did gave us life; what He does reveals and directs it. And that’s where the wonder is!
