Growth in Holiness

“The more the believer advances in knowledge and holiness, the more does he loathe himself, as by nature a child of that corruption which  still so closely cleaves to him.  So far is the feeling of the power of indwelling sin from being inconsistent with regeneration, that it must be experienced in proportion to the progress of sanctification.  The more sensitive we are, the more do we feel pain; and the more our hearts are purified, the more painful to us will sin be.  Men perceive themselves to be sinners in proportion as they have previously discovered the holiness of God and of His law.”

– Robert Haldane, from his Roman’s commentary, P. 302
