Not by deduction but by consciousness

“Did I not know the Lord to be mine, were I not certain his heart feels even more love for me than I am able to conceive, were not this evident to me, not by deduction and argument but by consciousness, by his own light shining in my soul as the sun doth upon my bodily eyes, into what deplorable situation should I have been now cast.”
~ Henry Venn, quoted in Martyn Lloyd-JonesJoy Unspeakable
