What to Think About

“Thoughts of the love of God, of the blood of Christ, or of the covenant of grace, and sense of pardon in them, will enlarge your hearts and sweeten all your duties. You will find a new life, a new pleasure, a new satisfaction, in all that you do…

“Labour to exercise your hearts greatly with thoughts of that abundant grace that is manifested in this way of sinners coming unto God, as also of the excellency of the gospel wherein it is unfolded… Consider the eternal love of the Father… the inexpressible love of the Son… And let the glory of the gospel, which alone makes the discovery of forgiveness in God, dwell in your hearts. Let your minds be exercised about these things.”

— John Owen, Works, vol. 6 (Banner of Truth Trust, 1991) pp. 534, 540
