Receives assurance of conversion

1642

Though raised in the Puritan tradition and embracing its tenets, Owen suffered with spiritual depression. He received assurance of salvation in 1642 (at the age of 26) after hearing a sermon at St. Mary Aldermanbury in London. The preacher’s text was ‘Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?’ (Matthew 8:26).
