"Indeed, in opposition unto this deceit lies much of the wisdom of faith and power of gospel grace. When the mind is fully possessed with, and cast habitually and firmly into, the mould of the notion and doctrine of gospel truth about the full and free forgiveness of all sins in the blood of Christ, then to be able to keep the heart always in a deep, humbling sense of sin, abhorrency of it, and self-abasement for it, is a great effect of gospel wisdom and grace."
John Owen, "The Nature, Power, Deceit, and Prevalency of the Remainders of Indwelling Sin in Believers". The Works of John Owen, Volume VI. The Banner of Truth Trust: Carlisle, PA. (1668) 2000. p.219.
