The Hearts of the Best are Like Peter’s Sheet

The hearts of the best are like Peter’s sheet, on which there were a number of unclean creeping things (Acts 10:12). This primitive corruption is bitterly to be wailed because we are never free from it. It is like a spring underground, which through it is not seen, yet it still runs. We may as well stop the beating of the pulse as stop the motions of sin. “Doctrine of Repentance” pg. 73
