Lord, save me from this body of wickedness and thank you for showing to me that which needs to be repented of.

Random Quote

Again, the principle to be slain is in ourselves. It cannot be killed without a sense of pain and trouble. Hence it is compared to the cutting off of right hands, and the plucking out of right eyes. Lusts that pretend to be useful to the state and condition of men, that are pleasant and satisfactory to the flesh, will not be mortified without such a violence as the whole soul shall be deeply sensible of.

— John Owen
