Mortification of Sin - Chapter One

From page 1:

If by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. (Rom 8:13)

This is the main text and foundation upon which this discourse is based. In this text we find:

1) To whom it is directed: 'You believers.'
2) The condition: 'If you.'
3) The means of accomplishment: 'The Spirit.'
4) A duty: 'Put to death the deeds of the body.'
5) A promise: 'You will live.'

Owen is often considered hard to read, but this Puritan Paperback has been Abridged and made easy to read by Richard Rushing. Yet, as can be seen from the section above, there is still plenty of meat to chew on in this abridgement.
