Jesus full of Grace and Truth [QUOTE] & the Death of John Owen

Today marks the 328th anniversary of the death of John Owen. If you don’t know who that is… shame on you. Just kidding – but seriously. You can go HERE to learn more about the man and the Reformer.

Below is a selection that I thought would be beneficial to you today.

“Christ is full of grace and truth. He is full and therefore sufficient to fulfill the purposes of grace. He was full of grace so as to be an example of obedience both to men and angels. He was full of grace so as to have uninterrupted communion with God. He is full of grace to supply all the needs of his people. He is full of grace to show forth the glory of the divine nature through his human nature. He is full of grace to bring his people to perfect victory over every trail and temptation. He is full of grace to enable his people to obey every righteous and holy law of God. He is full of grace to the utmost capacity of a limited, created, finite nature. He is full of grace to bring the fullest pleasure and delight to his Father. He is full of grace as an everlasting monument to the glory of God in giving such inconceivable excellencies to the Son of man.”

From Communion with God, John Owen, 1657.
