John on What You Might Say to Close the Sale in an Evangelistic Conversation

April 25, 2015

"...stir yoursel[f]...to choose and close with the way of forgiveness that hath been revealed.  Choose it only, choose it in comparison with and opposition to all others.  Say you will be for Christ, and not for another; and be so accordingly.  Here venture, here repose, here rest your soul...

 

It is a way of peace, safety, holiness, beauty, strength, power, liberty, and glory.  You have the nature, the name, the love, the purposes, the promises, the covenant, the oath of God; the love, life, death or blood, the mediation, or oblation and intercession of Jesus Christ; the power and efficacy of the Spirit, and gospel grace by him administered, - to give you assurance of the excellency, the oneness, the safety of the way whereunto you are engaging."

 

-John Owen, "An Exposition of Psalm 130".  The Works of John Owen, Volume VI.  The Banner of Truth Trust: Carlisle, PA.  (1668) 2000.  p.540.
