CQOD: 02/07/07 -- Owen: hot and cold

Christian Quotation of the Day

February 7, 2007
    In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
    -- Judges 21:25 (KJV)

    Common experience declares how momentary and how useless are those violent fits and gusts of endeavors which proceed from fear and uncertainty, both in things spiritual and things temporal, or civil. Whilst men are under the power of actual impressions from such fears, they will convert to God, yea, they will turn in a moment, and perfect their holiness in an instant; but so soon as that impression wears off (as it will do on every occasion, and upon none at all) such persons are as dead and cold towards God as the lead or iron, which but now ran in a fiery stream, is now when the heat is departed from it.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, send Your grace, to keep my mind and heart focussed on Your will.
