He Is Ours Forever!

The Lord Jesus Christ, fitted and prepared, by the accomplishment and furniture of his person as mediator, and the large purchase of grace and glory which he hath made, to be a husband to his saints, his church, tenders himself in the promises of the gospel to them in all his desirableness; convinces them of his good-will towards them, and his all-sufficiency for a supply of their wants; and upon their consent to accept of him,—which is all he requires or expects at their hands,—he engageth himself in a marriage covenant to be theirs for ever.

– John Owen –

from Of Communion With God, volume 2 of Works, page 57
