  1. Brandon,

    Here is one of my favorite Owen quotes:

    “The vigor, power and comfort of our spiritual life depends on our mortification of the deeds of the flesh.”
    ~ John Owen

    ~ Erik

  2. I’m sorry, I don’t rember where I read this but here it is:

    “To suppose that whatever God requireth of us that we have the power of ourselves to do, is to make the cross and grace of Jesus Christ of non-effect.”
    John Owen

  3. 2 quotes, but I don’t know the sources:

    “All apostasy for the most part begins in the will, which is more bruised by the fall than the understanding.”

    “The aim of grace is to humble the soul; and the aim of sin, to defile it.”

  4. It is not the distance of the earth from the sun, nor the sun’s withdrawing itself, that makes a dark and gloomy day; but the interposition of clouds and vaporous exhalations. Neither is thy soul beyond the reach of the promise, nor does God withdraw Himself; but the vapours of thy carnal, unbelieving heart do cloud thee.
