Owen: the evil threatened

Tuesday, January 21, 2020
    Feast of Agnes, Child Martyr at Rome, 304
    By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.
    —Hebrews 11:7 (NIV)
    It is one thing to fear God as threatening, with a holy reverence, and another to be afraid of the evil threatened.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), An Exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews, ch. XI ff, in Works of John Owen, v. XXIV, London: Johnson & Hunter, 1855, p. 50 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 11:7; Ps. 23:4; 119:120; Hab. 3:16; Mal. 2:5; Heb. 4:1; 5:7-8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, assist Your people, so that they may reach the world while there is still time.
