Unseen but greatly loved

Without having seen Him, you love Him; though you do not [even] now see Him, you believe in Him and exult and thrill with inexpressible and glorious (triumphant, heavenly) joy. [At the same time] you receive the result (outcome, consummation) of your faith, the salvation of your souls. (1 Peter 1:8, 9 AMP)

Mary the mother of Jesus held Him and wrapped Him to keep Him warm. The lady of the evening wept and dried His feet with her hair. The disciple John, in 1 John 1, talked about seeing Jesus with his own eyes, and touching Him with his hands. John was affectionate and leaned against Him at the Last Supper. Jesus showed He was real. He showed He was humble enough to be touched.

We don't have the privileges of sight and touch with our Savior. We may not have seen the look in His eyes but we can feel His love in our hearts. There's nothing like His loving way of saying "No." There's no joy or peace like hearing Him speaking "My grace is sufficient." When we're deeply in love the feeling, the foundation is not by sight but by heart. His sweet love will always be planted in our hearts whatever golden streets our eyes may see or gates of pearl our hands will open.

It's a mystery that, for grace, for the mercy of the Cross we receive the eternal safety of our souls for believing in One we cannot see but who loves us. The glory, the credit, the ability are not our own. The joy, the thrill are His planted in our hearts.
