“While we measure ourselves by our fellows, we shall, most likely, think more highly of ourselves than we ought to think (Rom. 12:3); but when we measure ourselves by the holy requirements of God’s nature, we cry “I am dust and ashes” (Gen. 18:27). True repentance changes a man’s opinion of himself.”~ Arthur Pink, “Vile”

There are men today who are in darkness and bondage because they are not willing to turn from their ‪‎sins‬ and ‪‎confess them. I do not know how a man can hope to be forgiven if he is not willing to confess his sins.~D.L. Moody 1837-1899


Without (‪‎repentance‬) there can be no meetness for heaven. We could not be happy if we reached the kingdom of glory with a heart loving sin‬. The company of saints and angels would give us no pleasure. Our minds would not be in tune for an eternity of holiness. Let these things sink down into hour hearts. We must repent‬ as well as believe‬, if we hope to be saved‬.~Expository Thoughts on the Gospels by J.C. Ryle

Many would admit Christ to be their advocate to plead for them, but not their king to rule over them. -Thomas Watson
