We are to find as much bitterness in weeping for sin as ever we found sweetness in committing it. Surely David found more bitterness in repenting then he ever found comfort in Bathsheba.

If we would find God amid all the religious externals we must first determine to find him, and then proceed in the way of simplicity. …We must put away all effort to impress, and come with the guileless candor of childhood. If we do this, without doubt God will quickly respond.

A man gives another a piece of bread or a piece of money. He gives it away and has nothing further to do with it. It is not so with God's gift of the Holy Spirit. No, the spirit is God. God is in the Spirit who comes to us, even as he was in the Son. The gift of the Spirit is the most personal act of the Godhead. It is the gift of Himself to us.

Fearfully and wonderfully … am I made, and designed for nobler ends and uses than for a few days to eat, and drink, and sleep, and talk, and die. My soul is of more value than ten thousand worlds.
Psalm 139:14; Matthew 10:31; Luke 12:7

The first and great work of a Christian is about his heart. There it is that God dwells by his Spirit, in his saints; and there it is that sin and Satan reign, in the ungodly. The great duties and the great sins are those of the heart. There is the root of good and evil: the tongue and life are but the fruits and expressions of that which dwells within.
Richard Baxter 1615 - 1691
