The Essence of Sin

“The very essence and inmost quality of sin consists in the lack of a heart to magnify the Lord, and to exalt His holy name”….”We should understand that there is no sin so wearing and wearisome as human egotism – as man’s inveterate unwillingness to sink self, and renounce all idolatry in the humble and adoring recognition of God’s infinite perfection…. Be impressed with the greatness, goodness, and glory of God!”
-W.G.T.Shedd, from his Sermons to the Spiritual Man, p.47,49
