Owen: the implantation of holiness

Wednesday, November 23, 2011
    Commemoration of Clement, Bishop of Rome, Martyr, c.100
    [Jesus in prayer:] “Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.”
    —John 17:17 (NIV)
    Holiness is nothing but the implanting, writing and realizing of the Gospel in our souls.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), IV.1 in A Discourse Concerning Holy Spirit, bk. I-V [1674], in Works of John Owen, v. III, London: Johnson & Hunter, 1852, p. 370-371 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, place Your word on the throne of my heart.
