In explaining what repentance is, the Westminster Confession makes the following astonishing claim, which is right at the heart of the glory of the gospel.

As there is no sin so small, but it deserves damnation; so there is no sin so great, that it can bring damnation upon those who truly repent. (15.4)

Our seemingly trivial self-indulgences and belittlings of God are far more evil than we know; and God's grace extends far deeper than we know, as the title of this blog reminds us.
