Owen: mixed motives

Monday, November 2, 2009
    Feast of All Souls
    [Jesus:] Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.
    —Matthew 9:38 (NIV)
    To some men it is hard seeing a call of God through difficulties; when if it would but clothe itself with a few carnal advantages, how apparent it is to them! They can see it through a little cranny.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), Works of John Owen, v. VIII, London: Johnson & Hunter, 1851, Sermon VII, p. 237 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me clarity in Your calling.
