“All tears of godly sorrow drop from the eye of faith. Godly sorrow rises and falls—as faith rises and falls.
The more a man is able by faith to look upon a pierced Christ—the more his heart will mourn over all the dishonours which he has done to Christ.
The more deep and wide the wounds are, which faith shows me in the heart and sides of Christ—the more my heart will be wounded for sinning against Christ.”
