Heart Embraced Doctrine

"When the heart is cast indeed into the mould of the doctrine that the mind embraceth---when the evidence and necessity of the truth abides in us---when not the sense of the words only is in our heads, but the sense of the thing abides in our hearts---when we have communion with God in the doctrine we contend for---then shall we be garrisoned by the grace of God against all the assaults of men."
-John Owen, The Mystery of the Gospel Vindicated [1655]
