Rebels argue, ‘If I am elected I shall be saved, do what I will. If not, I shall be damned, do what I can.’ Perverse sinner, will you begin where you should end? Is not the word before you? What saith it? ‘Repent and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out.’… Do not stand still disputing about your election, but set to repenting and believing. [ASGTH]

Repentance doth include a sensibleness of sin’s sinfulness, how opposite and contrary it is to the blessed God. God is light, sin is darkness; God is life, sin is death; God is heaven, sin is hell; God is beauty, sin is deformity.  [PRASD]
