Get thee up into the high mountain.
-Isaiah xl 9
Our knowledge of Christ is somewhat like climbing one of our Welsh mountains. When you are at the base you see but little: the mountain itself appears to be but one-half as high as it really is... Climb the first rising knoll, and the valley lengthens and widens beneath your feet. Go higher, and you see the country for four or five miles round... Mount still, and the scene enlarges; till at last, when you are on the summit... you see almost all England lying before you... All these things please and delight you, and you say, "I could not have imagined that so much could be seen at this elevation..."
When we first believe in Christ we see but little of Him. The higher we climb the more we discover of His beauties... Get thee up, dear friend, into the high mountain.
