John Owen – (1616-1683), Congregational theologian
“By faith fill your soul with a due consideration of that provision which is laid up in Jesus Christ for this end and purpose, that all your lusts, this very lust wherewith you art entangled, may be mortified. By faith ponder on this, that though you art no way able in or by yourself to get the conquest over your distemper, though you art even weary of contending, and art utterly ready to faint, yet that there is enough in Jesus Christ to yield you relief, Phil. iv. 13. It staid the prodigal, when he was ready to faint, that yet there was bread enough in his father’s house; though he was at a distance from it, yet it relieved him, and staid him, that there it was.”
