As John Owen continues in his Meditations and Discourses of the Glory of Christ, he emphasized that it is all centered in Christ. How can we know the glory of God’s love? It is only in and through Christ that we can know it:
“The apostle declares it in the next words, 1 John iv. 9, “In this was manifested the love of God towards us, because that God sent his only-begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.” This is the only evidence given us that “God is love.” Hereby alone is the divine nature as such made known unto us, — namely, in the mission, person, and office of the Son of God; without this, all is in darkness as unto the true nature and supreme operation of this divine love.” (Page 30)
We can only know and experience God’s love in and through His Son. Jesus is the full manifestation of God’s love and when we receive Him by faith, we’ll be the eternal recipients.
