Beauty and Excellence of Spiritual Things

“…the mind of man must see a beauty and desirability in the things of God’s worship or it will not delight in it—aversion will prevail. Let the soul therefore labour to acquaint itself with the spiritual beauty of obedience, of communion with God, and of all the duties of immediate approach to him, so that it may be filled with delight in them.” –John Owen “Indwelling Sin In Believers” (Banner of Truth – Puritan Paperback) p. 34

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
