Fuller: the pull of sin

Monday, October 2, 2023
    Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.
    —Romans 8:8 (NIV)
    Lord, before I commit a sin, it seems to me so shallow, that I may wade through it dry-shod from any guiltiness: but when I have committed it, it often seems so deep that I cannot escape without drowning.
    ... Thomas Fuller (1608-1661), Good Thoughts in Bad Times [1645], Chicago: United Society of Christian Endeavor, Boston, 1898, “Personal Meditations”, VII (see the book)
    See also Rom. 8:6-8; Ps. 25:11; 51:2; 130:1-5; Hos. 8:7; Mark 7:21-23; John 3:19-20; Gal. 6:7-8; 2 Thess. 2:11-12; 1 John 1:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, to sin is so easy; grant me the strength to resist sin.
