John Owen on how sins Punches Strike hard but indeed we have a Mighty Advocate in Jesus Christ to help Fight back

January 30, 2016

"It is the tearing and torturing of the soul by any sin to force its consent and to obtain satisfaction. It riseth up in the heart, is denied by the law of grace, and rebuked; ---it returns and exerts its poison again; the soul is startled, cast it off; ---it returns again with a new violence and importunity; the soul cries out for help and deliverance, looks round about to all springs of gospel grace and relief, trembles at the furious assaults of sin, and casts itself into the arms of Christ for deliverance."
