John Owen Quote: “Let no man pretend to fear sin that does not fear temptation also! These two are too closely united to be separated. He does not truly hate the fruit who delights in the root.”
John Owen Quote: “Meditate on the Word in the Word.”
John Owen Quote: “When we have communion with God in the doctrine we contend for-then shall we be garrisoned by the grace of God against all the assaults of men.”
John Owen Quote: “Let no man think to kill sin with few, easy, or gentle strokes. He who hath once smitten a serpent, if he follow not on his blow until it be slain, may repent that ever he began the quarrel. And so he who undertakes to deal with sin, and pursues it not constantly to the death.”
John Owen Quote: “Temptations and occasions put nothing into a man, but only draw out what was in him before.”
John Owen Quote: “In or towards whomsoever the Holy Spirit puts forth His power, or acts his grace for their regeneration, he removes all obstacles, overcomes all oppositions, and infallibly produces the intended effect.”
John Owen Quote: “Let not that man think he makes any progress in holiness who walks not over the bellies of his lusts. He who doth not kill sin in this way takes no steps toward his journey’s end.”
John Owen Quote: “Steadfastness in believing doth not exclude all temptations from without. When we say a tree is firmly rooted, we do not say the wind never blows upon it.”
John Owen Quote: “Then are we 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 Quote: “I do not understand how a man can be a true believer, in whom sin is not the greatest burden, sorrow and trouble.”
John Owen Quote: “Not to be daily mortifying sin, is to sin against the goodness, kindness, wisdom, grace, and love of God, who hath furnished us with a principle of doing it.”
John Owen Quote: “The custom of sinning takes away the sense of it, the course of the world takes away the shame of it.”
John Owen Quote: “There is not a day but sin foils or is foiled, prevails or is prevailed upon. It will always be so while we live in this world. Sin will not spare for one day. There is no safety but in a constant warfare for those who desire deliverance from sin’s perplexing rebellion.”
John Owen Quote: “Men think all things would be very glorious, it they might be done according their mind. Perhaps, indeed, they would-but with their glory, not the glory of God.”
John Owen Quote: “Unless men see a beauty and delight in the worship of God, they will not do it willingly.”
John Owen Quote: “It is one thing to fear God as threatening, with a holy reverence, and another to be afraid of the evil threatened.”
John Owen Quote: “Sin is never less quiet than when it seems to be most quiet.”
John Owen Quote: “Nothing shall be lost that is done for God or in obedience to Him.”
John Owen Quote: “Labour to grow better under all your afflictions, lest your afflictions grow worse, lest God mingle them with more darkness, bitterness and terror.”
John Owen Quote: “Faith, if it be a living faith, will be a working faith.”
John Owen Quote: “A true saving knowledge of sin is to be had only in the Lord Christ: in him may we see the desert of our iniquities.”
John Owen Quote: “Now nothing can prevent this but mortification; that withers the root and strikes at the head of sin every hour, so that whatever it aims at it is crossed in.”
John Owen Quote: “Christ did not die for any upon condition, if they do believe; but He died for all God’s elect, that they should believe.”
John Owen Quote: “The gospel shall be victorious. This greatly comforts and refreshes me.”
John Owen Quote: “Christ by his death destroying the works of the devil, procuring the Spirit for us, hath so killed sin, as to its reign in believers, that it shall not obtain its end and dominion.”
John Owen Quote: “You have your season, and you have but your season; neither can you lie down in peace, until you have some persuasion that your work as well as your life is at an end.”
John Owen Quote: “That wisdom which cannot teach me that God is love, shall ever pass for folly.”
John Owen Quote: “It must be observed, that the best of men, the most holy and spiritually minded, may have, nay, ought to have, their thoughts of spiritual things excited, multiplied, and confirmed, by the preaching of the word.”
John Owen Quote: “Without absolutes revealed from without by God Himself, we are left rudderless in a sea of conflicting ideas about manners, justice and right and wrong, issuing from a multitude of self-opinionated thinkers.”
John Owen Quote: “Temptation is like a knife, that may either cut the meat or the throat of a man; it may be his food or his poison, his exercise or his destruction.”
John Owen Quote: “If a man teach uprightly and walk crookedly, more will fall down in the night of his life than he built in the day of his doctrine.”
John Owen Quote: “The house built on the sand may oftentimes be built higher, have more fair parapets and battlements, windows and ornaments, than that which is built upon the rock; yet all gifts and privileges equal not one grace.”
John Owen Quote: “The most tremendous judgment of God in this world is the hardening of the hearts of men.”
John Owen Quote: “When sin lets us alone we may let sin alone; but as sin is never less quiet than when it seems to be most quiet, and its waters are for the most part deep when they are still, so ought our contrivances against it to be vigorous at all times and in all conditions, even where there is least suspicion.”
John Owen Quote: “He that hath slight thoughts of sin never had great thoughts of God.”
John Owen Quote: “Christ is the meat, the bread, the food of our souls. Nothing is in him of a higher spiritual nourishment than his love, which we should always desire.”
John Owen Quote: “The vigour, and power, and comfort of our spiritual life depends on the mortification of the deeds of the flesh.”
John Owen Quote: “It is not the glorious battlements, the painted windows, the crouching gargoyles that support a building, but the stones that lie unseen in or upon the earth. It is often those who are despised and trampled on that bear up the weight of a whole nation.”
John Owen Quote: “Temptation gains power by persistent solicitations that beget thoughts that make evil less serious.”
John Owen Quote: “He that stands still and suffers his enemies to double blows upon him without resistance, will undoubtedly be conquered in the issue.”
John Owen Quote: “Selfishness is the making a man’s self his own centre, the beginning and end of all he doeth.”
John Owen Quote: “We can have no power from Christ unless we live in a persuasion that we have none of our own.”
John Owen Quote: “Suppose a man to be a true believer, and yet finds in himself a powerful indwelling sin, leading him captive to the law of it, consuming his heart with trouble, perplexing his thoughts, weakening his soul as to duties of communion with God, disquieting him as to peace, and perhaps defiling his conscience, and exposing him to hardening through the deceitfulness of sin, – what.”
John Owen Quote: “The root of an unmortified course is the digestion of sin without bitterness in the heart. When a man hath confirmed his imagination to such an apprehension of grace and mercy as to be able, without bitterness, to swallow and digest daily sins, that man is at the very brink of turning the grace of God into lasciviousness, and being hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.”
John Owen Quote: “God never intended for us to be left to pray on our own. God never changes His purpose, but He often does purpose a change.”
John Owen Quote: “The choicest believers, who are assuredly freed from the condemning power of sin, ought yet to make it their business all their days to mortify the indwelling power of sin.”
John Owen Quote: “A soul under the power of conviction from the law is pressed to fight against sin, but hath no strength for the combat.”
John Owen Quote: “It is truth alone that capacitates any soul to glorify God.”
John Owen Quote: “Without a sincere and diligent effort in every area of obedience, there will be no sucessful mortification of any one besetting sin.”
John Owen Quote: “To say that we are able by our own efforts to think good thoughts or give God spiritual obedience before we are spiritually regenerate is to overthrow the gospel and the faith of the universal church in all ages.”
