Oswald Chambers Oswald Chambers (1874 - 1917)
Holiness
A saint's life is in the hands of God as a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer. God is aiming at something the saint cannot see; He stretches and strains, and every now and again the saint says, I cannot stand any more. But God does not heed; He goes on stretching until His purpose is in sight, then He lets fly.

Synopsis
"John Owen (1616-1683) wrote "The Doctrine of the Saints Perseverance Explained and Confirmed", which he subtitled also. The certain permanency of their acceptation with God and their sanctification from God manifested and proved, in 1654. Here is a modern English version of the same, somewhat abridged. The book was a reply to the erroneous teaching of a certain Mr John Goodwin. But Owen writes: 'The confutation of Mr Goodwin was but secondarily in my eye; the best way for that I judged to consist in a full Scriptural confirmation of the truth he opposed. That I chiefly intended; and therein I hope the pious reader may, through the grace of God, meet with satisfaction.'"
