Receiving Him

We must know Christ as He intends to show Himself, and which He found difficult, men being so slow to believe. Yet the humblest intelligence that will pledge itself to truths cannot fail to understand. Receiving Him with the obedient heart (the head cannot do it), He will be apprehended. Jesus Christ is my theology, and nothing else. If I can but understand Him, I shall need no other.

—George MacDonald
