John Owen on God the Evangelist

April 12, 2015

 

"By whom [are] these terms [of forgiveness in the gospel]...proposed unto you, and by whom [were] they...procured for you[?]  By whom are they proposed?  Who shall undertake to umpire the business, the controversy between God and sinners...it is God himself who proposeth these terms; and not only proposeth them, but invites, exhorts, and persuades you to accept of them...Oh, infinite condescention!  Oh, blessed grace!  Who is this that thus bespeaks you?  He against whom you have sinned, of whom you are justly afraid; he whose laws you have broken, and whose name you have dishonoured; he who needs not you, nor your love, nor your friendship, nor your salvation!  It is he who proposeth unto these terms of reconciliation and peace!...Woe would be unto your souls, and that for ever, if you should refuse him."
