Owen on The Presence of Christ, Sermons on John 10 and Ephesians 2, Song – Psalm 43

One of the great things about John Owen is that he is preeminently a theologian of the Holy Spirit.  This morning I read his comments on the ministry of the Spirit in the church.  Without that we are just dead – whatever our outward form.    I wonder as we go to worship this morning … More Owen on The Presence of Christ, Sermons on John 10 and Ephesians 2, Song – Psalm 43
