…FATHER, do I have “a sense of sins forgiven…” Martyn Lloyd-Jones (ref#189, Nov 29th)? This is the only way to experience peace and rest. Help me, LORD, to embrace my heart in honesty.
“Are you aware that there is an evil principle within you? Not simply that you do certain things you should not do and feel annoyed with yourself because of it. No; rather, I mean that you are aware that you have an evil nature, that there is a principle of sin and wrong in your heart, that there is a fountain emitting unworthy, ugly, and foul things, and in a sense you hate yourself. Our Lord said that the man who loves himself is in a very dangerous condition” Martyn Lloyd-Jones (ref#189, Nov 18th).
“If a sinner, upon being convicted our his sin and hearing the gospel of God’s grace, is willing to accept the gospel and by faith take it, he will see how the precious blood of the Lord Jesus answers all the accusations of his conscience….The blood of the Lord has atoned for all the sins of a believer; hence there is no more condemnation in the conscience….Our salvation is confirmed by the fact that the precious blood has quieted this voice of condemnation” Watchman Nee (ref#101, p108).
