Reviving by Owen

by Frank Jones

This, therefore, is the issue of the whole: -a steady view of the glory of Christ, in his person, grace, and office, through faith,-or a constant, lively exercise of faith on him, according as he is revealed unto us in the Scripture,-is the only effectual way to obtain revival from under our spiritual decays, and such supplies of grace as shall make us flourishing and fruitful even in old age (italics mine. John Owen, Works Vol. 1, 459.).
