God Knows who I am; He Knows that from head to foot I am full of sin; He Knows that I am weakness incarnate; that I can do nothing.
The trouble is that I do not Know it.
I admit that all men are sinners, and that therefore I am a sinner; but I imagine that I am not such a hopeless sinner as some.
God Must Bring us all to the Place Where we See that we are Utterly Weak and Helpless.
While we say so, we do not Wholly Believe it, and God Has To Do Something To Convince us of the Fact.
