Knowing Jesus strikes the balance…

Knowing God without knowing our own wretchedness makes for pride. Knowing our own wretchedness without knowing God makes for despair. Knowing Jesus Christ strikes the balance because he shows us both God and our wretchedness.

Blaise Pascal, quoted in Jesus in An Age of Controversy by Douglas Groothuis, p. 305
