Another assurance of salvation is sin becoming more repulsive and CHRIST more attractive.

“What a comfort it is to know that God’s forgiveness is deep enough to cover all sin and terrible times of backsliding!  Praise God for this forgiveness and for its purpose: to make sin more repulsive and Christ more attractive” (ref#164, March 4th).

FATHER, instill within me:

“In the worst frame that can affect a true child of God, there is always some indication that the divine life in the soul is not quite extinguished” (ref#135, July 28th).

FATHER, instill within me:

“Those low views of yourself—the brokenness, inward mourning, secret confession, and the longing for more spirituality, more grace, more devotedness, more love—only prove the existence of real growth in God’s work within you” (ref#135, May 18th).
