Owen: being disciples of Christ

Sunday, June 12, 2016
    [Jesus:] “If you love me, you will obey what I command.”
    —John 14:15 (NIV)
    Then are we the servants of God, then are we the disciples of Christ, when we do what is commanded us, and because it is commanded us.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), V.3 in A Discourse Concerning Holy Spirit, bk. I-V [1674], in Works of John Owen, v. III, London: Johnson & Hunter, 1852, p. 605 (see the book)
    See also John 14:15; Isa. 29:13-14; Luke 14:26-27; John 14:21-24; 15:10-14; 1 Cor. 16:22; 1 John 2:3; 5:2-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me into the path of obedience.
