possible revelation of God is that given by
the Son of God. And again, it must as cer¬
tainly follow that the most complete and per¬
fect revelations of Christ are those, the result
of the most intimate intercourse and fellow¬
ship with Him.
While it is true that " the heavens declare
the glory of God," equally true is it that
" one star differeth from another in glory."
The most casual observer who scans never so
hurriedly the great volume of celestial nature,
cannot but be strikingly impressed with the
stupendous exhibition of variety amidst the
harmony which he finds there. When the
psalmist considered the heavens, the diver¬
sity of their revelation of combined wisdom
and power, and the reflection of creature im¬
age in this looking-glass of nature, it so be¬
wildered him that he stood speechless in the
presence of a self-instituted investigation.
So, too, with the contemplator of the Word
of God. In exploring the realms of sacred
truth, in reflecting the glories of Deity, in
revealing the wealth of Christologic nature
and operations, in poring over the mysteries
of the eternal world, his is a task from which,
unaided, he would shrink in bewilderment.
