Seeing Christ's Glory and Spiritual Decay

John Owen and the Glory of Christ

Having read through The Glory of Christ by John Owen I have some questions. Has "look to Christ", or "behold Christ" become nothing more than a platitude?

Cultivating Christian Friendship

Our common belief in Christ, shared in the context of good food and laughter made for a memorable time together.
