John Owen Teaches How Although We Do Not See God, We Know Him When He Grants the Free Gift of Faith

December 2, 2015

"That infinite and inconceivable distance that is between him and us keeps us in the dark as to any sight of his face or clear apprehension of his perfections. We know him rather by what he does than by what he is, ---by his doing us good than by his essential goodness; and how little a portion of him, as Job speaks, is hereby discovered! We know little of God because it is faith alone whereby here we know him."

 

John Owen, "Of the Mortification of Sin in Believers; ". The Works of John Owen, Volume VI.  The Banner of Truth Trust: Carlisle, PA.  (1668) 2000.  p.67.
