Owen: first obedience, then peace

Thursday, April 23, 2020
    Feast of George, Martyr, Patron of England, c.304
    Commemoration of Michael Ramsey, Archbishop of Canterbury, Teacher, 1988
If you, O LORD, kept a record of sins,
    O Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness;
    therefore you are feared.
    —Psalm 130:3-4 (NIV)
    See in the meantime that your faith bringeth forth obedience, and God in due time will cause it to bring forth peace.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), An Exposition upon Psalm CXXX [1668], in Works of John Owen, v. VI, New York: R. Carter & Bros., 1851, p. 563 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 130:3-4; 25:11; 86:5; 103:2-5; Isa. 1:18; Jer. 31:34; John 14:27; Rom. 5:1-2; 2 Cor. 1:12; 10:5
Quiet time reflection:
    Keep my footsteps in the right path, Lord, that I may receive Your peace.
