There is great difference between the wool on the sheep’s back, which shorn, will grow again, and the wool of the sheep’s skin on a wolf’s back. Clip that, and you shall see no more grow in its room. The sincere Christian is the sheep, the hypocrite is the wolf, clad in the sheep’s skin.

William Gurnall, The Christian in Complete Armour


Sincere faith promotes restoration. We will all stumble and sin, but a sincere heart will stand again. A person’s ability to recover and persevere while hating their sin will often reveal the truth of their faith. This is one of the things that sets the true believer apart from the hypocrite, who appears the same on the surface.
