Passage: Luke 10:22 & John 6:44

Coming to Christ

…no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him

(LUKE 10:22)

But what I hope the spiritual church of Christ will, above every other consideration, take with them, while contemplating this boundless subject, (the humiliation and exaltation of Christ, and His everlasting dominion and authority,) is the assurance that for the participation in those unsearchable riches of Christ, all the persons in the Godhead concur to the spiritual realization of them in every heart. If you or I are led to the spiritual knowledge of the Person, and to the enjoyment of the riches of Christ, it is God the Father, who hath manifested His grace in those divine acts for that purpose. Jesus himself hath said, “No man knoweth who the Son is but the Father;” and that the very “coming to Christ” can only be “by the drawing of the Father” (LUKE 10:22; JOHN 6:44.) And no less is the hand of Christ in this great work, for as the knowledge of the Son is by the Father’s teaching, so the knowledge of the Father is by the Son; and “to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him.” And from the same authority we learn that it is among the gracious acts of God the Holy Ghost that the church in all her numerous members and diversified circumstances, is made blessed and happy in the possession of Christ Himself and His unsearchable riches, when that Almighty God ‘takes of Christ, and shows unto His people.’
