Faith is the sight of the soul, and it is far better than the sight of the senses.  It is more direct.  My eye does not touch what I look at.  Gulfs of millions of miles may lie between me and it.  But my faith is not only eye, but hand, and not only beholds, but grasps, and comes into contact with that which it is directed.  It is far more clear.  Sense may deceive.  Faith, built upon His Word, cannot deceive.  Its information is far more certain, far more valid. – Alexander Maclaren (1826-1910), from a meditation on John 14.18-19.
