on repentance

I came across this wonderful old quote again today and wanted to share it.

"Repentance is necessary: 'except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish' (Luke 13:5) There is no rowing to paradise except upon the stream of repenting tears. Repentance is required as a qualification. It is not so much to endear us to Christ as to endear Christ to us. Till sin be bitter, Christ will not be sweet."

Thomas Watson
The Doctrine of Repentance
