You Are What You Hate, What You Cherish

Ray Ortlund, Jr.: is how you can know right now where you stand with God:
The difference between an unconverted man and a converted man is not that one has sins and the other has none; but that the one takes part with his cherished sins against a dreaded God, and the other takes part with a reconciled God against his hated sins.
From the present Book of the Month: Proverbs: Wisdom that Works, (Wheaton: Crossway, 2012), p. 108, quoting William Arnot, Laws from Heaven for Life on Earth: Illustrations of the Book of Proverbs (London: T. Nelson and Sons, 1884), p. 311.
