All sinners are in desperate need of Divine compassion.
Loveless and self-righteous men keep themselves aware of the sins of others but not of their own.
The sense of guiltiness may differ in degree, but the absolute inability of man to atone for sin is common to all.
As sin is against Christ, to Christ belongs the right and power to forgive it.
Sometimes when someone’s sins are not flagrant or open to the public, they may not be conscious of their awful need.
Those who have wandered far enough to have felt the world’s scorn realize most fully the goodness of God in pardoning them, and hence are moved to greater expressions of gratitude than are given by the self-righteous.
The blessing we seek is not proportioned to the quantity of sins, but is proportioned to the quality of sinful sense which we feel.
We all have sin enough to destroy our souls, but many of us fail to love God as we should, having an insufficient sense of our own sinfulness.
