John Owen Identifies the Radical Change that Occurs when God calls Someone from Darkness into Light

February 27, 2016

"Having tasted of the wine of the gospel, they desire no other, for they say, "This is best." So was it with the apostles, upon the apostasy of many false professors: "Will ye also go away?" John vi. 67. They answer by Peter, "Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life," verse 68. They had such a fresh savour and relish of the doctrine of the gospel and the grace of Christ upon their souls, that they can entertain no thoughts of declining from it. As a man that hath been long kept in a dungeon, if brought forth on a sudden into the light of the sun, finds so much pleasure and contentment in it, in the beauties of the old creation, that he thinks he can never be weary of it, nor shall ever be contented on any account to be under darkness again; so it is with souls when first translated into the marvelous light of Christ, to behold the beauties of the new creation."
