Yes, you are right, nothing can separate you from the love of God. However, although being in Christ you will have the Spirit until the day you die, you'll never in this life rid yourself of the flesh. And although, God in covenant, will cast your sins away and never remember them, he will not let you forget your previous wicked life. Grace becomes a true grace prayer only when it is accompanied by a consciousness of sin, an ever-knowing sense of unworthiness. The Publican pleaded for mercy that only Christ supplies; the Pharisee saw no need outside himself; no sincere need for a redeemer.

Matt. 9:13 "But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy and not sacrifice; for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
