I am thankful to have picked this up when I did. Watson is both biblical and theological in persuading you to repent. Also, this is probably one of the most quotable books I have ever read. Here is just a taste!Smite your soul, said Chrysostom, smite it; it will escape death by that stroke. How happy it would be if we were more deeply affected with sin, and our eyes did swim in their orb.Repentance is pure gospel grace.A wicked man may be troubled for scandalous sins; a real convert laments heart-sins.Godly sorrow, however, is chiefly for the trespass against God, so that even if there were no conscience to smite, no devil to accuse, no hell to punish, yet the soul would still be grieved because of the prejudice done to God.We are to find as much bitterness in weeping for sin as ever we found sweetness in committing it.A broken heart and a broken Christ do well agree. The more bitterness we taste in sin, the more sweetness we shall taste in Christ.They who will not confess their sin as David did, that they may be pardoned, shall confess their sin as Achan did, that they may be stoned.Confession of sin endears Christ to the soul.Unthankfulness is a sin so great that God himself stands amazed at it: Hear, o Heavens, and give ear, O each: I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me (Isa 1:2).Can we look upon a suffering Savior with dry eyes? Shall we not be sorry for those sins which made Christ a man of sorrow? Shall not our enormities, which drew blood from Christ, draw tears from us? Shall we sport any more with sin and so rake in Christs wounds? Oh that by repentance we would crucify our sins afresh!A repenting person fears and sins not; a graceless person sins and fears not.Thus I have laid down the means or helps to repentance. What remains now but that we set upon the work. And let us be in earnest, not as fencers but as warriors.
