That sin might become more bitter.

May 1, 2010

A broken heart and a broken Christ do well agree. The more bitterness we taste in sin the more sweetness we shall taste in Christ.

A regenerate person abhors sin not only for the curse but for the contagion. He hates this serpent not only for its sting but for its poison. He hates sin not only for hell but as hell.

(Thomas Watson, Repentance, pp. 27 & 47)

My buddy Jenna reminded me of that first quote.  (Love you, Jenba!)
