A lost and undone sinner?
Winslow, "The Impenitent Sinner Warned"
No man shall value Christ, or His precious
atonement, until he has been made to see and
feel himself to be a lost and undone sinner.
Christ is precious only to the soul that feels....
its spiritual poverty,
To such an individual, Jesus is everything.
The deeper the Eternal Spirit leads him to an
acquaintance with himself, the more precious is
that Savior, whom he now finds to be the very
Savior that he needs.
The daily discovery of....
love of the world,
and the innumerable other forms which indwelling
depravity assumes, endears to him the fountain
that cleanses from all sin; he repairs afresh to it,
washes again and again in it; and these daily
applications to the atoning blood make sin
increasingly sinful, and strengthen the panting
of his soul for divine conformity.
