“The power of Christ will be manifested in all, by the destruction either of sin or the sinner. The hearts which now yield to the impressions of His Spirit are broken only in order to be formed anew, and to become vessels of honour fitted for the Master’s use. Those which continue stubborn must be dashed in pieces by the stroke of eternal vengeance” George Horne (ref#333, p292).

“Either God or sin must die in my life” Oswald Chambers (ref#7, June 23rd).

“People conceived and brought into life by God don’t make a practice of sin. How could they? God’s seed is deep within them, making them who they are. It’s not in the nature of the God-born to practice and parade sin. Here’s how you tell the difference between God’s children and the Devil’s children: The one who won’t practice righteous ways isn’t from God, nor is the one who won’t love brother or sister. A simple test” (1 John 3:9-10 MSG).

“[H]e that has slight thoughts of sin, had never great thoughts of God” John Owen (ref#225, p298).

“[W]icked men cannot sigh for heaven” Robert Rollock (ref#333, p115).

“[S]in is horrible because I crucified the Savior. It is an awful thing to insult God to His face” Charles Spurgeon (ref#34, Nov 2nd PM).
