Our hearts are prone to legalism and pride, as sure as a cowlick resists being combed. 

Edward Fisher, in his 1645 book The Marrow of Modern Divinity, nails the Chrostian’s experience: “Where is the man or woman, that is truly in Christ, that findeth not in themselves an aptness to withdraw their hearts from Christ, and to put some confidence in their own works and doings? If there be any that do not find it, I wish their hearts may not deceive them.”
