Tillotson: public repentance

Tuesday, August 19, 2014
    Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent.
    —Revelation 3:19 (NIV)
    In case our sins have been public and scandalous, both reason and the practice of the Christian Church do require, that, when men have publicly offended they should give public satisfaction and open testimony of their repentance.
    ... John Tillotson (1630-1694), Works of Dr. John Tillotson, v. VII, London: J. F. Dove, for R. Priestley, 1820, Sermon CLX, p. 284-285 (see the book)
    See also Rev. 3:19; Ps. 19:12; 38:18; Jas. 5:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me the courage to confess and repent as I should.
