Owen: amazement

Tuesday, February 17, 2015
    Feast of Janani Luwum, Archbishop of Uganda, Martyr, 1977
    Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.
    —Hebrews 5:8-10 (NIV)
    We are never nearer Christ than when we find ourselves lost in a holy amazement at his unspeakable love.
    ... 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. 528 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 5:8-10; John 4:34; 6:38; Heb. 3:6; 10:5-7; Phil. 2:8; Rev. 5:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, you are worthy.
