If we seek pardon…

“…if we seek pardon we must seek it in God’s way. We do not beg God to rescind and, make void his laws, and those wise constitutions he hath appointed whereby the creature shall receive this grace ; and the manner wherein he will deal and transact this business with the offending creature : but we seek it as exercising our renewed repentance ; that is, mourning for sin, and loathing of sin.”
