A Thick Crust

Familiarity with the form of religion, while we neglect its reality, has a fearfully deadening effect on the conscience. It brings up by degrees a thick crust of insensibility over the whole inner man. None seem to become so desperately hard as those who are continually repeating holy words and handling holy things, while their hearts are running after sin and the world.

~ J.C. Ryle (1816-1900)

    1. I might suggest we all need to draw near unto God and He will draw near unto us helping us to grow in our love and desire for all things holy. The further we drift from Him, the further we are from His holiness.
