Again, woke up in a good frame this morning. Had these words in my head; “I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly trust in Jesus’ name.” What a good reminder that it is not my good frames that save, only Christ. This trust in Christ then is what puts me into a good frame, not the other way around.

Read the following in Brainerd, “I saw my sinfulness in this, that when God had withdrawn himself, then, instead of living and dying in pursuit of him, I …” When God is far, let us pursue him with all our might.

The whole of our sanctification and holiness is comprised in these promises. To be cleansed from the defilements of sin, whatever they be, to have a heart inclined, disposed, enabled, to fear the Lord always, and to walk in all his ways and statutes accordingly, with an internal habitual conformity of the whole soul unto the law of God, is to be sanctified or to be holy. And all this God promiseth directly to work in us and to accomplish himself.

— John Owen
