Had it not been for the love of Jesus, we should have remained, to this moment, in utter ignorance for, without His gracious opening of our understanding, we could no more have attained to spiritual knowledge than an infant can climb the pyramids or an ostrich fly up to the stars.  Jesus’ college is the only one in which God’s truth can be really learned.  Other schools may teach us what is to be believed, but Christ’s, alone, can show us how to believe it.  Let us sit at the feet of Jesus and, by earnest prayer, call in His blessed aid that our dull wits may grow brighter and our feeble understandings may receive heavenly things. – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), from a meditation on Luke 24.45.
