Our main sin, Christ’s main goal


John Owen:

Indeed, the great sin of believers is, that they make not use of Christ’s bounty as they ought to do; they do not every day take of him mercy in abundance. (Communion with God, pp. 239-40)

That fits with what Owen later calls Christ’s greatest goal.

The prime end and aim of the Lord Christ . . . is, to gather in those heirs of salvation to the enjoyment of that feast of fat things which he has prepared for them in his house. (p. 337)
