(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

That is, our condition here in this world is such, that we cannot see God face to face, but by faith only; whilst we are in the body, we do not see and enjoy, but believe and expect. Faith is the thing in expectation: sight is the thing in fruition; faith is a cloudy discovery of things at a distance; sight is a clear view and apprehension of things that are present.

Learn, 1. That faith is for earth, and sight is for heaven.

2. That till we have sight, it is a great advantage that we have faith.

3. That if we now have faith, we may be well assured that ere long we shall have sight.
