All that Christ was and is still attracts the soul that sees it. If an eclipse dims or veils the sight of him for the moment, we may be sure that this warm, healing Sun of our life has not set. He is still there, and some of us continue to feel our hearts burn with his presence …
He cannot preach without our lips,
comfort without our help,
heal without our hands,
carry the truth without our feet,
remove the shadow without our faith and effort.
The invisible works through the visible,
the unseen and eternal operates through little instruments like us!
– Rufus Jones, The World Within, 1921.
We look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen;
for the things that are seen are transient,
but the things that are unseen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:18
The Bible, Revised Standard Version.
