The Two Wings of the Saint

“TheĀ  two great graces essential to a saint in this life are faith and repentance. These are the two wings by which he flies to heaven. Faith and repentance preserve the spiritual life as heat and radical moisture do the natural.”

– Thomas Watson, The Doctrine of Repentance, p. 7

Godly Sorrow

“Godly sorrow shows itself to be ingenuous because when a Christian knows that he is out of the gun-shot of hell and shall never be damned, yet he still grieves for sinning against that free grace which has pardoned him.”

– Thomas Watson, The Doctrine of Repentance, p. 22
