(On the awakening of the conscience to the reality of sin and the necessity of the Gospel)

“Those whom conscience has terrified in this manner would most surely be driven to despair, the usual condition of the condemned, if they were not lifted up and encouraged by the promise of the grace and mercy of God, commonly called the gospel.  If the afflicted conscience believes the promise of grace in Christ, it is resuscitated and quickened by faith.”
