Rutherford: repentance

Tuesday, November 2, 2021
    Feast of All Souls
    “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.
    —Ephesians 4:26-27 (NIV)
    A repenting man is more angry at his own heart that consented to sin than he is at the devil who did tempt him to sin.
    ... Samuel Rutherford (1600-1664), Quaint Sermons of Samuel Rutherford: hitherto unpublished, London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1885, p. 123 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 4:26-27; Heb. 2:18; 4:15; Jas. 1:13-15; 1 John 2:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I cannot defeat sin in my own power.
