Our Helplessness

“The first attempt to render spiritual obedience will quickly convince us of our utter helplessness.  We might as soon create a world, as create in our hearts one pulse of spiritual life.  And yet our inability does not cancel our obligation.  Shall God lose His right , because sin has palsied our ability?”

-Charles Bridges, from his commentary on Psalm 119, p.9
