Owen: living faith

Saturday, May 28, 2011
    Commemoration of Lanfranc, Prior of Le Bec, Archbishop of Canterbury, 1089
    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)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your gift of faith energizes Your people.
