Fears and Corruptions

A selection from a letter by Thomas Chalmers, Free Church of Scotland minister, to Jane Morton, February 6, 1824:

I am more persuaded than ever of the nothingness of man, that his wisdom consists in reliance upon God, in closing with Him as his reconciled Father in Christ Jesus, and casting the whole burden both of his fears and of his corruptions on that Saviour whose blood should wholly dissipate the one, and wholly cleanse from the other.

Letters of Thomas Chalmers, edited by William Hanna, first published 1853, reprinted by The Banner of Truth, 2007, pp. 189-190.
