Proof that John Owen is Not Dry and Boring

At least not all the time.  Check out this amazing prayer at the end of chapter one of Communion with God:

…I pray that the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has, by the riches of his grace, brought us from a state of enmity into this glorious fellowship with himself, may give you such a taste of his sweetness and excellence in this communion as to be stirred up to a greater longing for that eternal enjoyment of him in eternal glory. 

Maybe that was a tad wordy.  Owen’s prayer is that we may taste so much of Jesus in our present relationship with Him that it may cause us to long for that day when sin will no longer taint our experience of Christ.
