Sunday's Quips and Quotes # 29 (John Owen)


If we do not abide in prayer, we will abide in temptation. Let this be one aspect of our daily intercession: ‘God, preserve my soul, and keep my heart and all its ways so that I will not be entangled.’ When this is true in our lives, a passing temptation will not overcome us. We will remain free while others lie in bondage

John Owen
(1616–83)

Enjoyed the quote Gregg. Reminds me of how part of the Lord's prayer reads a bit different when a comma is inserted (after lead us) like this:

And lead us, not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
