A quote from John Owen:
This is that I aim at: unless a man be regenerate, unless he be a believer, all attempts that he can make for mortification, be they never so specious and promising-all means he can use, let him follow them with never so much diligence, earnestness, watchfulness, and intention of mind and spirit-are to no purpose. In vain shall he use many remedies; he shall not be healed.~John Owen (Of The Mortification Of Sin In Believers, Part 2, Chapter 7)
This quote was taken from the book Overcoming Sin and Temptation, Three Classic Works By John Owen, published by Crossway in 2006.
