God uses sin!

John Flavel: “The Lord makes use even of your sins and infirmities to do you good. By these, He … humbles you, beats you off from self-dependence, makes you admire the riches of grace, makes you long more ardently for heaven, and causes you to entertain sweeter thoughts of death. Does not the Lord then make blessed fruits to spring up from such a bitter root? O the blessed chemistry of heaven—to extract such mercies out of such miseries.
