Sundar Singh: the end of sin

Tuesday, November 7, 2023
    Feast of Willibrord of York, Archbishop of Utrecht, Apostle of Frisia, 739
    This [intercession] is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
    —1 Timothy 2:3-4 (NIV)
    As men have chosen sin, they must die in sin. God does not bring about this death. God sends no one to hell. The sinner himself brings this punishment down on himself. Let us look at the case of Judas Iscariot. When he betrayed the Lord, Pilate did not hang him, nor did the High Priest, nor did our loving Savior, nor did the Apostles. He hanged himself. He committed suicide. He died in his sin. This is the end of him who lives in sin.
    ... Sadhu Sundar Singh (1889-1929), The Message of Sadhu Sundar Singh, B. H. Streeter & A. J. Appasamy, New York: The Macmillan Company, 1922, p. 124-125 (see the book)
    See also 1 Tim. 2:3-4; Ps. 55:23; Matt. 21:32; 27:5; Acts 1:18-19; Rom. 2:4; 3:19; 2 Pet. 3:9; Rev. 2:21
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You only are the source of salvation.
