Tillotson: sinful sorrow over sin

Saturday, February 13, 2016
    [Jesus:] “Hear and understand: it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.”
    —Matthew 15:10-11 (ESV)
    Sin is a base and ill-natured thing, and renders a man not so apt to be affected with the injuries he hath offered to God, as with the mischief which is likely to fall upon himself.
    ... John Tillotson (1630-1694), Works of Dr. John Tillotson, v. VII, London: J. F. Dove, for R. Priestley, 1820, Sermon CLX, p. 287 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 15:10-11; Ps. 32:5; 38:18; 51:3; 52:2-4; Pr. 28:13; Isa. 59:12-15; Matt. 15:18-20; Jas. 3:5-8
Quiet time reflection:
    Holy Spirit, guard my tongue from sin, for Jesus’ sake.
