The difference between a converted person and an unconverted person is not that one sins and the other does not, but that the one takes part in his cherished sins against a dreaded God, and the other takes part with a reconciled God against his hated sins.
– William Arnot
Repentance is appealing to the Love and Mercy of God.
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ – by grace you have been saved.
– Ephesians 2:4-5
Men are greatly terrified at the multitude of their sins, but here is comfort – our God has a multitude of mercies. If our sins be in number as the hairs on our head, God’s mercies are as the stars of heaven.
– Charles Spurgeon
