Nothing will so much excite and encourage our souls

“Let us live in constant contemplation of Christ’s glory. As we do, virtue will proceed from Him to repair our spiritual decay, to renew a right spirit within us, and to cause us to abound in obedience…When our souls are filled with thoughts of Christ and His glory, they will discard all causes of spiritual weakness…Nothing will so much excite and encourage our souls as a constant view of Christ and His glory.” 

 
– John Owen, Meditations and Discourses Concerning the Glory of Christ, in The Works of John Owen, 1:460-61
