"Will not a due apprehension of this inconceivable greatness of God, and that infinite distance wherein we stand from him, fill the soul with a holy and awful fear of him, so as to keep it in a frame unsuited to the thriving and flourishing of any lust whatever? Let the soul be continually wonted to reverential thoughts of God's greatness and omnipresence and it will be much upon its watch as to any undue deportments. Consider him with whom you have to do, ---even "our God is a consuming fire;" and in your greatest abashments at his presence and eye, know that your very nature is too narrow to bear apprehensions suitable to his essential glory."
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.70.
