Quote of the Day #36 - John Owen

A quote from John Owen:
When a man has 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 (Of The Mortification Of Sin In Believers, Part 1, Chapter 2)

John Owen was a puritan born in the early 1600s. This quote was taken from the book Overcoming Sin and Temptation, Three Classic Works By John Owen, published by Crossway in 2006.
