“The Christian will tell you that he weeps over his very tears; he feels that there is filth even in the best of desires; that he has to pray to God to forgive his prayers, for there is sin in the midst of his supplications, and he has to sprinkle even his best offerings with the atoning blood for he never else can bring an offering without spot or blemish.  You shall appeal to the brightest saint, to the man whose presence in the midst of society is like the presence of an angel, and he will tell you that he is still ashamed of himself.  ‘Ah!’ he will say.  ‘You may praise me, but I cannot praise myself, you speak well of me, you applaud me, but if you knew my heart you would see abundant reason to think of me as a poor sinner saved by grace, who hath nothing where of to glory, and must bow his head and confess his iniquities in the sigh of God.'” ~Charles Spurgeon

Amen Charles.  Amen.
