“They know nothing of the life and power of the gospel, nothing of the reality of the grace of God, nor do they believe aright one article of the Christian faith, whose hearts are not sensible [keenly aware] of the love of Christ herein; nor is he sensible of the love of Christ, whose affections are not thereon drawn out unto him. I say, they make a pageant of religion, . . . whose hearts are not really affected with the love of Christ, in the susception [undertaking] and discharge of the work of mediation, so as to have real and spiritually-sensible affections for him.”
John Owen, Works Vol. 1, pp. 166-167.
