The robe of Christ’s righteousness, our crown of hope, the diamond of faith, the pearls of love, are invisible to physical eyes. We still wrestle in the flesh; in a sinful world and with a moral nature we plod on wearily. A child of God is here and now, indeed, like a diamond that is crystal white within but is still uncut and shows no brilliant flashes from reflecting facets.
— R.C.H. Lenski
