- We lost a paradise by sin,
and have gained a heaven by the cross.
Stephen Charnock (1628-80)
Until sin be bitter,
Christ will not be sweet.

is death to every vice.

I believe what Christ hath done for me, that I may repent.

A discovery of Christ
in the light of the Spirit,
wastes, weakens and withers
the body of sin.
