Owen: the burden of sin

Sunday, June 12, 2022
    Trinity Sunday
Woe to those who draw sin along with cords of deceit,
    and wickedness as with cart ropes...
    —Isaiah 5:18 (NIV)
    I do not understand how a man can be a sincere believer unto whom sin is not the greatest burden and sorrow.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), I.4 in The Grace and Duty of being Spiritually Minded [1681], in Works of John Owen, v. VII, London: Johnson & Hunter, 1852, p. 333 (see the book)
    See also Isa. 5:18; Deut. 7:26; Matt. 11:28-30; 2 Cor. 7:10-11; Eph. 2:1-2; Jas. 1:13-15; 4:17
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I cast my burden upon You.
