My Year with Owen #14

I will be sharing some John Owen quotes this year. The first book I'll be reading is Of the Mortification of Sin in Believers (1656).

  • Do not speak peace to yourself before God speaks it, but hearken to what God says to your soul. ~ John Owen
  • When we look for peace, his chastisements must be in our eye. ~ John Owen
  • Whoever speaks peace to himself upon any one account, and at the same time has another evil of no less importance lying upon his spirit, about which has had no dealing with God, that man cries "peace" when there is none. [Jeremiah 6:14; 8:11] ~ John Owen
  • Set faith at work on Christ for the killing of your sin. ~ John Owen 
  • His blood is the great sovereign remedy for sin-sick souls. ~ John Owen 
  • Live in this, and you will be a conqueror. ~ John Owen
