“Faith seeks out rest for the soul… by Christ it has an access to the Father (Eph. 2:18) – into his love; finds out that he is love, as having a design, a purpose of love, a good pleasure toward us from eternity – a delight, a complacency, a goodwill in Christ – all cause of anger and aversation being taken away. The soul being thus, by faith through Christ, and by him, brought into the bosom of God, into a comfortable persuasion and spiritual perception and sense of his love, there reposes and rests itself.” -John Owen

We are teaching Vivienne “For the Beauty of the Earth” this month. May we revel in the blessings that God has lavished on us because He loves us.

“Whom have I in heaven but you and there is non upon earth that I desire beside you”

(Psalm 73:25.)

“Thus the soul gathers itself from all its wanderings, from all other beloveds, to rest in God alone – to satiate and content itself in him; choosing the Father for his present and eternal rest…”-John Owen
