Evil Nature Insensible to Sin

TAKE a dozen pails full of water from you stream, and endeavor to carry their weight. You cannot lift them! Yet the little fish frolic at the very bottom of the river, with hundreds of pails of water upon them, and they feel not the burden, for it is their natural element. So give a believer a burden of sins to carry, and he prays to be quit of it, but the sinner dives to the very bottom of the river of iniquity, and finds there his home.
