'Christ is a great and glorious person, but how great and glorious soever He be, the small and feeble arms of thy faith may surround and embrace Him; and thou mayest say with the church, "My beloved is mine, and I am His:" For mark what He saith in the text, "If any man open to me, I will come unto him.'' That soul shall be my habitation, there will I dwell for ever. Thus will Christ dwell in your hearts by faith. What soul feels not itself advanced by this union with the Son of God ? Hereby the believer becomes a member of His body, flesh and bones; this is an honour bestowed upon thy soul, above, and beyond all that honour that ever God bestowed upon any angel in heaven; to them Christ is a head by way of dominion, but to thee by way of vital influence.'
John Flavel, England's Duty, Vol. 4, pp.61-62
