Let His Cross Interpose

Whatever be your designs and aims, let his cross continually interpose between your affections and this world….

What he [Jesus] did forego and trample on for our sake, that ought not to be the object of our affections; nor can such affections prevail in us if he dwell in our hearts by faith.”

– John Owen, On Spiritual Mindedness
