"But store the heart with a sense of the love of God in Christ, with the eternal design of his grace, with a taste of the blood of Christ, and his love in the shedding of it; get a relish of the privileges we have thereby, ---our adoption, justification, acceptation with God; fill the heart with thoughts of the beauty of holiness, as it is designed by Christ for the end, issue, and effect of his death; ---and thou wilt, in an ordinary course of walking with God, have great peace and security as to the disturbance of temptations."
John Owen, "Of Temptation: The Nature and Power of It, Etc.;". The Works of John Owen, Volume VI. The Banner of Truth Trust: Carlisle, PA. (1668) 2000. p.134.
