More mercy in Christ than sin in me
I am thoroughly enjoying Richard Sibbes' The Bruised Reed. This is one of the few puritan books that is very easy to read. It is packed with life-transforming sentences and meditations. Here are a few I've been meditating on:
"...there is more mercy in Christ than sin in us..."
"The purest actions of the purest men need Christ to perfume them; and this is his office. When we pray, we need to pray again for Christ to pardon the defects of our prayers."
