CQOD: 10/14/06 -- Owen on temptation
Christian Quotation of the DayOctober 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.
