True Self-Knowledge

“‘O wretched man that I am’.  This then is the language of a regenerate soul.  It is the confession of the normal (undeceived and undeluded) Christian….  Bishop Berkeley wrote, “I cannot pray, but I sin; I cannot preach, but I sin; I cannot administer, nor receive the holy sacrament, but I sin.  My very repentance needs to be repented of; and the tears I shed need washing in the blood of Christ” (1670AD)… Augustus Toplady wrote, “Upon a review of the past year, I desire to confess that my unfaithfulness has been exceedingly great; my sins still greater; God’s mercies greater than both” and also, “My short-comings and my mis-doings, my unbelief and want of love, would sink me into the lowest hell, was not Jesus my righteousness and my Redeemer”.

Quoted from A.W.Pink’s “The Christian in Romans 7”
