In Moses, self first emerges in the way of confidence in itself; then, after forty years, in the way of fear.
Faith never makes me, or my state, its object, but it makes Christ and His work its object.
The presence of God, when the conscience is sensible of it, takes away every hope of enjoying sin.
Forgiveness, in the sense of non-imputation, cannot be sought by one set free in Christ, because he already knows that sins are not imputed to him. He confesses his sins and fatherly forgiveness is given him.
Innocence describes the world that was, sin the world that is, and righteousness the world that is to come.
