CQOD: 10/14/06 -- Owen on temptation

Christian Quotation of the Day

October 14, 2006
    "Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers."
    -- Luke 22:31-32 (ESV)

    Steadfastness in believing doth not exclude all temptations from without. When we say a tree is firmly rooted, we do not say the wind never blows upon it.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your strength is my only hope.
