A Great Work of God the Spirit

The Christian is the object of a great work of God the Spirit. He has experienced in regeneration, however unconsciously, a transition paralleled only by the creation of the world and the resurrection of Christ.” (John Owen On The Christian Life, p74)

How often do we take for granted our new life in Christ? How often do speak of our conversion in passing forgetting the incredible miracle it really is? How indifferently do we declare, "Yes, I am a Christian"?

We are a great work; Dead, and now 'Finally Alive'.

We would not look on creation or the resurrection with apathy and thus we should not look on our 'great salvation' with any less reverence. Not great because of our involvement, but great because of His. Great grace. Great love. Great God!
