“I also saw that it was ot my good feelings that made my righteousness better, and that my bad feelings did not make my righteousness worse; for my righteousness was Jesus Christ Himself, ‘the same yesterday, and today, and forever’ (Heb. 13:8).”
“I saw that all those graces of God that belonged to me but which I showed so little, were like those few coins that rich men used to carry in their purses while their gold was in their trunks at home.
