Owen: living faith

Saturday, April 24, 2021
    Commemoration of Mellitus, First Bishop of London, 624
    In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
    —James 2:17 (NIV)
    Faith, if it be a living faith, will be a working faith.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), An Exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews, ch. VI-VII, in Works of John Owen, v. XXII, London: Johnson & Hunter, 1855, p. 163 (see the book)
    See also Jas. 2:14-17; 1 Thess. 1:3; Eph. 2:8-9; 1 Tim. 1:5; 2 Pet. 1:5-9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your gift of faith energizes Your people.
