Owen: fail but do not abandon Christ

Wednesday, July 21, 2021
    Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
    —James 4:8 (NIV)
    Consider that it is not failing in this or that attempt to come to Christ, but a giving over your endeavors, that will be your ruin.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), The Glory of Christ [1684, 1691], in Works of John Owen, v. I, London: Johnson & Hunter, 1850, p. 428 (see the book)
    See also Jas. 4:8; Matt. 15:22-28; Luke 13:24; 22:44; Eph. 6:18; Heb. 12:1-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You reward those who persist.
