Learning from Temptation: A Gospel Cordial from John Owen

A man shall see that it is God alone who keeps from all sin. Until we are tempted, we think we live on our own strength. Though all men do this or that, we will not. When the trial comes, we quickly see whence is our preservation, by standing or falling. – John Owen, from On Temptation.
