"Only by seeing our sin do we come to see the need for and wonder of grace.
But exposing sin is not the same thing as unveiling and applying grace.
We must be familiar with and exponents of its multifaceted power,
and know how to apply it to a variety of spiritual conditions.
Truth to tell, exposing sin is easier than applying grace;
for, alas, we are more intimate with the former than we sometimes are with the latter.
Therein lies our weakness."
~ Sinclair Ferguson, as quoted in an interview with CJ Mahaney
