You Must Live with Your Self as Long as You Live

There is no profounder change in the universe than the change which is described as regeneration; but regeneration—the work of God in the soul by which he implants a principle of divine and spiritual life within us—does not change a man's temperament. Your temperament still remains the same. The fact that you have become a Christian does not mean that you cease to have to live with yourself. You will have to live with yourself as long as you are alive, and yourself is your self and not somebody else's self.
—D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Spiritual Depression (Hannibal: Granted Ministries), 95.
