Hodge: the power of sin

Tuesday, June 5, 2018
    Feast of Boniface (Wynfrith) of Crediton, Archbishop of Mainz, Apostle of Germany, Martyr, 754
    Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.
    —Mark 14:38 (NIV)
    There are... few stronger indications of ignorance of the power and evil of sin, than the confident assertion of our ability to resist and subdue it.
    ... Charles Hodge (1797-1878), Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans, Philadelphia: W. S. & A. Martien, 1864, p. 363 (see the book)
    See also Mark 14:38; Matt. 26:41; Luke 20:40,46; Gal. 5:17; 1 Pet. 5:8; Rev. 3:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant that I may seek only You when in temptation.
