"The extent to which we realise and acknowledge our own sinfullness, and the extent to which we realise the total forgiveness and cleansing from those sins, will determine the measure of our love to God. So if we want to grow in our love for God and in the acceptable obediance that flows out of that love, we must keep coming back to the cross and the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ. That is why it is so important that we keep the gospel before us evey day. Because we sin every day, and our consciences condemn us evey day, we need the gospel every day."
Jerry Bridges, the Discipline of Grace
