Drawing from an Ocean of Light

I cried unto the Lord, saying, “Why should [the powers of evil in the hearts and minds of wicked men be manifested to me], seeing I was never addicted to commit these evils?” and the Lord answered, “That it was needful I should have a sense of all conditions, how else should I speak to all conditions?” and in this I saw the infinite love of God. I saw also that there was an ocean of darkness and death; but an infinite ocean of light and love, which flowed over the ocean of darkness. (Journal of George Fox)
