I Am Growing Worse Every Day!

I Am Growing Worse Every Day!

One of the best evidences of growth in grace, is a
clearer and deeper insight into the evils of your own
heart. But your first conclusion is apt to be--"I am
growing worse every day!
I see innumerable
evils springing up within me which I never saw
before!"

This person may be compared to one shut up in
a dark room where he is surrounded by many
loathsome objects. If a single ray of light is let
into the room, he sees the more prominent objects.
And if the light gradually increases, he sees more
and more of the filth by which he has been
surrounded. It was there before--but he
did not perceive it.
His increased knowledge
of the fact is a sure evidence of increasing light.


(Archibald Alexander, "Growth in Grace" 1844)
