That Which Is Sweet

When God speaks, there is not only truth in his words, that may answer the conviction of our understandings, but also they do good; they bring that which is sweet, and good, and desirable to the will and affections; by them the “soul returns unto its rest” Ps. 116:7.

– John Owen –

from The Mortification of Sin in Believers, volume 6 of Works, page 76
