I trust that sorrowful penitence still exists, though I have not heard much about it lately. People seem to jump into faith very quickly these days. I hope my old friend repentance is not dead. I am desperately in love with repentance; it is the twin sister of faith.
I do not myself understand much about dry-eyed faith; I know that I came to Christ by the way of the weeping cross. When I came to Calvary by faith, it was with great weeping and supplication, confessing my transgressions, and desiring to find salvation in Jesus, and in Jesus only.
– C. H. Spurgeon
