They love it!

(William S. Plumer, "Sinners Saved by Unmerited Kindness")

"Man, who is vile and corrupt, who drinks up evil like water!" Job 15:16

The unconverted live in sin — they sin all the time. It is their trade — they work hard at it. They love it, and are greedy for iniquity. They "dig up evil." They "fill up their sin ALWAYS." They "ALWAYS resist the Holy Spirit." Never for an hour, do they love God supremely. Unregenerate men sin always — they do nothing but sin against God!

All the unconverted do nothing but sin. If for a while they seem to reform — they soon return to their wickedness, as the dog to his vomit; or the sow that was washed, to her wallowing in the mire.

Neither mercies,
nor judgments,
nor promises,
nor threatenings,
nor hopes,
nor fears
 — without the grace of Christ — will or can ever cure the love of sin, or arrest the practice of sin.

"The carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." Romans 8:7
