3. Let a due consideration of God’s long-suffering increase our abhorrence of sin. All sin is an offence against the most gentle, loving, patient, forbearing Being in the universe. To maltreat any man is wrong. But to pursue with wanton insult and contumely one that shows a loving disposition, even after he has been treated amiss, is justly esteemed very base. Such is the real character of all the sin we commit against God. And sin in the regenerate is against more love, more light, and more mercy than are granted to the unregenerate. O Christian, hate sin in all—but most of all, hate it in yourself.
