The believer is to put those sins, that now he would have pardoned, into the hands of Christ, the everlasting Intercessor, and all-sufficient Advocate, that He, by virtue of His death, would obtain a new pardon of these their failings and transgressions, and deliverance from the guilt thereof, and their acceptance with the Father, notwithstanding of these transgressions.
If [the believer] grow in the knowledge of his own ignorance, it is a growth of knowledge not to be despised; and in an manner, what can we else know of God, but that He far transcendeth all our knowledge, and that He is an incomprehensible one in all His ways. . . . If one grow not, as he supposeth, in the knowledge of God and of the mysteries of the gospel; yet if he grow in the discovery of the treachery and wickedness of his own heart, he cannot say that he groweth not in knowledge.John Brown (of Wamphray)
