Owen: assessing your condition

Saturday, September 26, 2015
    Commemoration of Wilson Carlile, Priest, Founder of the Church Army, 1942
    Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
    —James 4:7 (NIV)
    Your state is not at all to be measured by the opposition that sin makes to you, but by the opposition you make to it.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), An Exposition upon Psalm CXXX [1668], in Works of John Owen, v. VI, New York: R. Carter & Bros., 1851, p. 605 (see the book)
    See also Jas. 4:7; Ps. 130:4; Matt. 4:3-11; Luke 4:1-13; Eph. 4:26-27; 6:11-12; 1 Pet. 5:8-9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make me hate my sin.
