Godly sorrow

(J. C. Philpot, "What Is It That Saves a Soul?")

Godly sorrow springs from a view of a suffering
Savior, and manifests itself by . . .
  hatred of self,
  abhorrence of sin,
  groaning over our backslidings,
  grief of soul for being so often entangled by our lusts and passions,
  and is accompanied by . . .
      softness,
      meltings of heart,
      flowings of love to the Redeemer,
      indignation against ourselves,
      and earnest desires never to sin more.
