Christ Is Known Best By Sinners In Distress

The greatness of Christ’s merit is known best by sinners in deep distress.  The thirstier a man is, the more he’ll prize a cup of water; the more our sins break and burden us, the more we’ll teasure our Healer and Deliverer.

~ Thomas Wilcox in Honey From A Rock, as quoted by Jerry Bridges and Bob Bevington in The Bookends of the Christian Life, page 61.
