    [Jesus:] “No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father.”
    —John 6:46 (NIV)
    The one use of the Bible is to make us look at Jesus, that through Him we might know His Father and our Father, His God and our God. Till we thus know Him, let us hold the Bible dear as the moon of our darkness, by which we travel toward the east; not dear as the sun whence her light cometh, and towards which we haste, that, walking in the sun himself, we may no more need the mirror that reflected his absent brightness.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), “The Higher Faith”, in Unspoken Sermons [First Series], London: A. Strahan, 1867, p. 55 (see the book)
    See also John 6:46; Matt. 11:27; Mark 2:27-28; Luke 10:22; John 1:18; 5:36-40; 8:19; 14:10; Col. 1:15; 1 Tim. 6:13-16; 1 John 4:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I praise Your word and seek Your light.
