Weekly Quote 7-26-17

Now you may ask, must we always speak about repentance? Here is the point; do you fall? You must keep repenting. I will always speak to you about repentance, my brother, just as I talk to myself, because I fall. Now, if you can tell me, if you can assure me, that you no longer fall, then I would stop talking to you about repentance. Who can boast, who can claim that he does not fall? We all fall; we fall daily; and since we fall daily, we are in need of repentance on a daily basis— that is, if we want to be saved.
