Behold, I am vile! I am vile, indeed!

-Spurgeon, from his sermon, 'Indwelling Sin'

"Behold, I am vile." -Job 40:4

How great must have been my sin to need such a Saviour!
How desperate my filth, to require such a washing!
How awful my guilt, to need such an atonement as the
blood of Christ!

You may rest assured, that the more you know of God
and of Christ, the more you will know of yourself.
And the more you know of yourself,
the more you will be obliged to say--
"Behold, I am vile! I am vile, indeed!"
-vile in an extraordinary sense, even as you never guessed
or fancied until now.
