Sinful Security

It is needful, to keep us off from security in ourselves. There is such a treachery in our hearts, that we are able to build carnal security upon the spiritual dispensations of God’s kindness and love…It is needful, therefore, God should sometimes break in upon our concerns, that we may not turn a constant course of his kindness into a sinful security of our own.

~John Owen

from a sermon entitled The Everlasting Covenant, The Believer’s Support Under Distress, volume 9 of Works, page 413
