Gospel Driven Quote of the Week

John Owen on what it means to be gospel-driven:

“For the doctrine of justification is directive of Christian practice, and in no other evangelical truth is the whole of our obedience more concerned; for the foundation, reasons, and motives of all our duty towards God are contained therein. Wherefore, in order unto the due improvement of them ought it to be taught, and not otherwise. That which alone we aim (or ought so to do) to learn in it and by it, is how we may get and maintain peace with God, and so to live unto him as to be accepted with him in what we do.”

(John Owen, “The Doctrine of Justification By Faith,” The Works of John Owen, vol. 5, p. 10)
