Grace No Privilege To Sin

Grace doth not privilege sin

Christ takes more notice of the sins of His people than of the sins of others. Others’ sins are enmities: He expects no other from them. The sins of His own are unkind, and more affect Him. Their professions, mercies, covenants, assistances, privileges, require a suitable walk. Judas, his betraying Christ, did not so much trouble Him as Peter’s denial of Him.
