Ryle: the sinfulness of sin

Wednesday, August 2, 2023
    It is God’s will that you should be sanctified...
    —1 Thessalonians 4:3 (NIV)
    I am convinced that the first step towards attaining a higher standard of holiness is to realize more fully the amazing sinfulness of sin.
    ... J. C. Ryle (1816-1900), Holiness [1877, 1879], Sovereign Grace Publishers, reprint, 2001, p. 9 (see the book)
    See also 1 Thess. 4:3-7; Matt. 5:48; John 17:17; Rom. 7:13; 2 Cor. 3:18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, even yet I do not fully recognize my sin.
