Hoskyns: the recognition of sin

Thursday, March 3, 2016
    If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
    —1 John 1:8 (ESV)
    The overwhelming recognition of human sin controls the Old Testament and the New Testament alike, and no understanding of our Lord’s words and actions is possible if we persist in denying it.
    ... Sir Edwyn C. Hoskyns (1884-1937), Cambridge Sermons, London: SPCK, 1938, p. 58 (see the book)
    See also 1 John 1:8; Ps. 143:2; Pr. 20:9; Eccl. 7:20; Isa. 53:6; 64:6; Matt. 1:21; Acts 2:38; Rom. 3:23; 1 John 1:10; 3:6
Quiet time reflection:
    I avoid looking at my sin, Lord, but Your word is truth.
