Gracious Straightening

April 29, 2010

Via Ray Ortlund

“You cannot sin and not suffer from it.  It just can’t be done.  I spent a great deal of my life trying to sin and to do away with my conscience at the same time.  One of the things I like best about being a Christian is the way that I suffer when I sin – it is the chastisement which guarantees me that I am one of God’s people.  I like it.  It feels good.  It feels like correction.  It feels as if I am being straightened out. . . .  When I was only half-believing God, he actually did come into me and make me miserable every time I sinned.  That is how I learned that he really is believable.”

Ted Wise, preaching at Peninsula Bible Church, 11 June 1972.
