„All true love to God is preceded in the heart by these two things — a sense of sin, and an assurance of pardon. There is no love possible — real, deep, genuine, worthy of being called love of God — which does not start with the belief of my own transgression, and with the thankful reception of forgiveness in Christ.“

—  Alexander Maclaren, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), P. 397.
