“What a wondrous thing” by Michael Horton

“What a wondrous thing it is that even though Jesus Christ has been exalted to the throne of God, absent from us in the flesh, we may nevertheless only now be united to Him in a manner far more intimate than the fellowship enjoyed by the disciples with Jesus during His earthly ministry.

Having united Himself to us in our flesh, in our sins, in our suffering and death, He now unites us to Himself in His new-creation life by His Spirit.”

–Michael Horton, The Christian Faith: A Systematic Theology for Pilgrims On the Way (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2011), 587.
