Losing sight of Christ

Some weave a veil of doctrine which screens the Saviour from their eyes. It is emblazoned with creeds, definitions and orthodox statements of truth. It is not Christ but doctrines about Christ, which inspires them; the death of Christ rather than the Christ who died; the resurrection rather than the risen One; the priesthood rather than the priest. The correctness of our notions about the Savior may even cause us to miss the Savior Himself.

–F. B. Meyer (1847 – 1929)
