From Spurgeon Gold, page 50:
"You will tell me, 'This is very unpleasant,--to be made to feel that you are sinful.' Ay, but it is very necessary. There is no getting to Christ in any other way. Christ died for sinners, and if you are not sinners, what interest can you have in His death? Why should you think that He died for you? You must be convinced of your sinfulness before you can possibly realize the value and need of salvation."
