Die grootse sonde is ook die maklikste sonde om te pleeg

Die “Puritans” was bekend vir hulle diep geestelike insig. In hierdie uittreksel van die gebed “Union with Christ ” word ons herinner aan ons totale afhanklikheid van God se genade.

“O Father, Thou hast made man for the glory of thyself, and when not an instrument of that glory, he is a thing of nought; No sin is greater than the sin of unbelief, for if union with Christ is the greatest good, unbelief is the greatest sin, as being cross to thy command; I see that whatever my sin is, yet no sin is like disunion from Christ by unbelief. Lord, keep me from committing the greatest sin in departing from him, for I can never in this life perfectly obey and cleave to Christ.” (The Valley of Vision)
