Tell others about Jesus like John Owen did:
Though we are not all called to the ministry of Foreign Missionary, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians. Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ___________

Introduction by J. I. Packer
"I owe more, I think, to John Owen than to any other Theologian, ancient or modern, and I am sure I owe more to this little book on mortification than to anything else he wrote..."
-J. I. Packer ____________________________
John Owen drove the sword of the Spirit into my heart like a surgeon's scalpel.
Review by: Jonathan A Blevins (Duluth, Minnesota)
I usually give a book a month or more to ruminate so I can weigh the value of its contents against all that I have learned from scripture, but in this one case I'm breaking that rule.
...John Owen just drove the sword of the Spirit into the very midst of my still-beating heart like a surgeon's scalpel.
This Book is Life-Changing
This book is life-changing. It is biblical, powerful, relevant and Spirit-filled. Owen has made all the questions which lingered in my mind with regard to sanctification and the means by which we are to pursue holiness by the power of the Holy Spirit suddenly coalesce into a coherent, scriptural, practical, spiritual whole.
In (only 100 pages or so)
he did this! And how foolish I feel for not having seen it all before
when it is so clear and simple and plainly biblical! But don't
take my word for it. Here's the opening statement of the section
on the actual work of mortification:
This sin makes him captive to its power, and consumes his heart with trouble.
perplexes his thoughts, weakens his soul in communion with God, takes
away his peace, defiles his
conscience, and exposes him to hardening through the deceitfulness of
sin. What shall he do?

What course shall he take to mortify this sin, lust or corruption?
How can he gain victory enough, even though it is not utterly destroyed, yet, in his contest with it, he may be enabled to maintain his power, strength and peace in communion with God?" _________________________
