John Owen on the Sincere Invitation of the Gospel

1616 – 1683



Works, vol. 1, p. 422, compiled by Erroll Hulse

Why will ye die? why will ye perish? [Eze. 33:11] why will you not have compassion on your own souls?  Can your hearts endure, or can your hands be strong, in the day of wrath that is approaching?  It is but a little while before all your hopes, your reliefs, and presumptions will forsake you, and leave you eternally miserable.  Look unto me, and be saved [Isa. 45:22];—come unto me, and I will ease you of all sins, sorrows, fears, burdens, and give rest unto your souls [Matt 11:28].  Come, I entreat you;—lay aside all procrastinations, all delays;—put me off no more;—eternity lies at the door
