The Power of Truth in the Heart

Sentences like these (and what they convey) are why I love John Owen:
It is one thing to have only the conviction of truth in our minds; another to have the power of it in our hearts. The former will only produce an outward profession; the latter effect an inward renovation of our souls.
—John Owen, The Doctrine of Justification by Faith (vol. 5, Works; Carlisle: Banner of Truth, 1998), 376.
