For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
A young man once said to me, "I do not think I am a sinner." I asked him if he would be willing his mother or sister should know all he had done or said or thought — all his motives and desires. After a moment he said, "No, indeed, not for all the world." "Then can you dare to say, in the presence of a holy God, who knows every thought of your heart, 'I do not commit sin'?"
(J. B. Gough.)
