John Owen: The Suitable Savior


There is no man whatever that hath any want in reference unto the things of God, but Christ will be unto him that which he wants…. Is he dead? Christ is life. Is he weak? Christ is the power of God and wisdom of God. Hath he the sense of guilt upon him? Christ is complete righteousness…. Many poor creatures are sensible of their wants, but know not where their remedy lies. Indeed, whether it be life or light, or power or joy, all is wrapped up in him.

John Owen; Works, Vol. II, pg 52 (from Communion With God)
