The Holy Spirit, at times gives testimony concerning Jesus, to open up a passage of Scripture, speaking of Jesus, to cast a divine light before astonished eyes, and to throw some beams of gospel truth into our souls, whereby we see Jesus. At times we are brought to say,from an apprehension of His beauty and loveliness,''We would see Jesus.'' We want to feel His love, to have our eyes anointed to behold His glory, to look upon Him as crucified for us and bearing our sins in His own body on the tree, that we have a sweet, blessed fellowship with Him as our Surety. Wherever there is a work of grace upon the soul, there will be this pining after Christ. The soul that is really taught of God can never rest satisfied short of Jesus.
