The Mind of Jesus
THE MIND OF JESUS! What a study is this! To attain a dim reflection of it, is the ambition of angels - higher they can not soar. "To be conformed to the image of His Son!" - it is the end of God in the predestination of His Church from all eternity. "We shall be like Him!" - it is the Bible picture of heaven!
But how lofty such a standard! How all creature-perfection shrinks abashed and confounded before a Divine portraiture like this! He is the true "Angel standing in the sun," who alone projects no shadow; so bathed in the glories of Deity that likeness to Him becomes like the light in which He is shrouded - "no man can approach unto it." May we not, however, seek at least to approximate, though we can not adequately resemble? It is impossible on earth to associate with a fellow-being without getting, in some degree, assimilated to him. So, the more we study "the Mind of Christ," the more we are in His company - holding converse with Him as our best and dearest friend - catching up his holy looks and holy deeds - the more shall we be "transformed into the same image."
