John Bunyan se bekering

But one day as I was passing into the field, with some dashes on my conscience, fearing yet that all was not right, suddenly this sentence fell on my soul: “Your righteousness is in heaven”. I thought I saw with the eyes of my soul Jesus Christ at God’s right hand. There was my righteousness. Wherever I was, or whatever I was doing, God could not say of me that I lacked his righteousness, for that was ever before Him. Moreover, I saw that it was not my good frame of heart that made my righteousness better, nor yet my bad frame that made my righteousness worse, for my righteousness was Jesus Christ Himself, “the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). Now did my chains fall off my legs indeed. I was loosed from all my afflictions and irons; my temptations also fled away.

(John Bunyan; Grace Abounding to the chief of sinners)
