The difference between a penitent sinner, and an impenitent

January 22, 2017

 

‘Stop not (with unregenerate men) in the mention of particular sins or duties; but make use of particulars to convince them of a state of sin and misery.’ It is easy to convince a man that he is a sinner; and when that is done, he is never the more humbled or converted; for he will tell you that all are sinners; and therefore he hopeth to speed as well as you. But you must make him discern his sinful state, and shew him the difference between a penitent sinner, and an impenitent; a converted sinner, and an unconverted; a justified, pardoned sinner, and an unjustified, unpardoned one; or else you will do him but little good.
