Owen: sin in his heart

Friday, July 11, 2014
    Feast of Benedict of Nursia, Father of Western Monasticism, c.550
    Oh, that their hearts would be inclined to fear me and keep all my commands always, so that it might go well with them and their children forever!
    —Deuteronomy 5:29 (NIV)
    In all the sins of men, God principally regards the principle, that is, the heart.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), An Exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews, ch. III-V, in Works of John Owen, v. XXI, London: Johnson & Hunter, 1854, p. 88 (see the book)
    See also Deut. 5:29; Ps. 95:10-11; Pr. 23:26; Matt. 5:27-28; Heb. 3:7-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, cleanse and correct my heart.
