Owen: not with pardon only

Saturday, October 28, 2023
    Feast of Simon & Jude, Apostles
    For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
    —2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV)
    Pardon comes not to the soul alone, or rather, Christ comes not to the soul with pardon only; it is that which He opens the door and enters by, but He comes with a Spirit of life and power.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), An Exposition upon Psalm CXXX [1668], in Works of John Owen, v. VI, New York: R. Carter & Bros., 1851, p. 535 (see the book)
    See also 2 Tim. 1:7; Ps. 130:4; Acts 1:8; 2:38; 10:38; 1 Cor. 2:4-5,12-13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your salvation has healed my life.
