Owen on the Nature of Our Obedience

18 Jan

Men who, in their obedience, have base, low, unworthy ends, walk as contrary to God in their obedience as in their sins. Some serve him for custom; some for an increase of corn, wine, or oil, or the satisfying of some low earthly end; some aim at self and reputation. All is lost;—it is not walking with God, but warring against him.

Owen, J. (n.d.). The works of John Owen. (W. H. Goold, Ed.) (Vol. 8, p. 90). Edinburgh: T&T Clark.
