The believer is a mystery to others and a mystery to himself, too.
He is sanctified, yet he feels himself to be the chief of sinners.
He loves God’s law, yet he wrestles with inward rebellion.
He loves Christ, yet he weeps over his lack of love for his Redeemer.
He believes God, yet his heart aches because of his horrid unbelief.
He has great sorrow and heaviness of heart because of his sin, yet he rejoices in the Lord always.
His spirit longs to be with Christ, yet his flesh clings to the earth.
He knows that he is secure in Christ, yet he examines his faith continually.
