“We love Him because He first loved us.” Love is like an echo, it returneth what it receiveth.
— Thomas Manton
Q. 87. What is repentance unto life?
A. Repentance unto life is a saving grace, whereby a sinner, out of a true sense of his sin, and apprehension of the mercy of God in Christ, doth, with grief and hatred of his sin, turn from it unto God, with full purpose of, and endeavor after, new obedience.
— Westminster Shorter Catechism
