The Sensitive Christian and Unbelief

The sense of the evil of sin is given to quicken our application to Christ, and not to discourage our approach. The Scripture has concluded all under sin, and as such we are all condemned already. But the Gospel proclaims a free pardon to every one who, with the eye of his mind, looks for life to him who hung upon the cross.

When we burden ourselves with our many sins, we are apt to overlook the very greatest of them – unbelief; for what can be a greater proof of stubbornness and pride than to dare to contradict the express Word of God, to say that He will not pardon, when He declares that He will; to persist in it that He will make differences when He has assured us that He will make none?

Letters of Newton, p. 198.
