“Divine things are usually better seen by the heart…”


Words of C. H. Spurgeon:


“Divine things are usually better seen by the hear than by understanding. God has revealed a thousand things which we shall never understand, and yet we can know them by a loving, trusting experience. The purifying of the heart is the enlightening of the spiritual eyes. Strange as it may seem, the true eye of the renewed man is seated in the heart rather than in the head. Holy affections enable us to see and, as far as possible, to understand divine things.”

“Grace becomes a platform upon which all the perfections of deity exhibit themselves, and grace becomes a light which shines on all the rest; and they, albeit bright enough in themselves, seem to be doubly bright when they glow in its brilliance.”

Words from God’s Word in the Apostle Paul’s Epistle to the Ephesians:


God’s Rich Blessings

Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavens in Christ. For he chose us in him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and blameless in love before him. He predestined us to be adopted as sons through Jesus Christ for himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace that he lavished on us in the Beloved One.

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace that he richly poured out on us with all wisdom and understanding. He made known to us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure that he purposed in Christ as a plan for the right time ​— ​to bring everything together in Christ, both things in heaven and things on earth in him.

In him we have also received an inheritance, because we were predestined according to the plan of the one who works out everything in agreement with the purpose of his will, so that we who had already put our hope in Christ might bring praise to his glory.

In him you also were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and when you believed. The Holy Spirit is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of the possession, to the praise of his glory.
