Owen: the opposition of hell

Sunday, May 6, 2018
    What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?
    —Romans 8:31 (NIV)
    As they that know any thing in this world know that, as the first great opposition of hell, the world, and corrupt nature, is against faith to God by Christ; so the next great opposition made against us, is against our love.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), Works of John Owen, v. IX, New York: R. Carter, 1851, Sermon XXI, p. 261 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 8:31; Matt. 24:22; John 13:34; 15:12; Rom. 12:10; 1 Pet. 1:22; Rev. 2;4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I am the weak point in Your plan. Strengthen me against sin, for Your Kingdom’s sake.
