John Owen on Temptation

One of the benefits of temptation is that we learn about ourselves. John Owen said this, “A man shall see that it is God alone who keeps from sin.  Until we are tempted, we think we live on our own strength. . . We know not the power and strength that God puts forth in our behalf, no what is the sufficiency of his grace, until, comparing the temptation with our own weakness, it appears unto us. . . We shall never know what strength there is in grace if we know not what strength there is in temptation.”
