This is one of the awful results of our prayerlessness and of our quick, careless waiting before God: a true knowledge of sin is all but lost…

Remember that you are a child of God.  Sometimes you commit sin: you allow it to fulfill its desires.  Are you forced to cry out with shame: “Woe unto me because of my sin”?  The power of sin is that it binds us so that we do not recognize its true character.  Even the Christian finds an excuse, thinking that he can never be perfect and that daily sin is a necessity.  He is so accustomed to the idea of sinning that he has lost the ability to grieve over it…

Remember what God thinks about sin: His holiness burns against it;  He sacrificed his son to conquer sin and deliver us from it… Remember the cross and what the love of Christ endured there; what unspeakable pain sin caused Him…

Wait in God’s presence until His holiness shines upon you and you are forced to cry out with Isaiah: “Woe unto me for I am undone!”

~ Various portions of  chapter 10 in Andrew Murray’s Living a Prayerful Life

That I would grieve and have so tender and passionate a heart…!
