Christ's role, that of being the life of man, is still to a great extent an unexplored field of immense spiritual possibilities, at least for individual souls.
It is simply impossible to tell to what extent individual souls may find Christ to be their life. The past exhibits some very glorious patterns of Christ as the life of man. The future may have in store other and no less surprising manifestations of the same life.
