Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 20th October

From Every Sin

He shall save his people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21)

Lord, save me from my sins. Save me from my past sins, that the habit of them may not hold me captive. Save me from my constitutional sins, that I may not be the slave of my own weaknesses. Save me from the sins which are continually under my eye, that I may not lose my horror of them. Save me from secret sins; sins unperceived by me. Save me from sudden and surprising sins: let me not be carried off my feet by a rush of temptation. Save me, Lord, from every sin. Let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

You alone can do this. You know temptation, for you were tempted. You know sin, for you bore the weight of it. You can save me from sinning and save me when I have sinned. It is promised in your very name that you will do this. Save me unto holiness of life, that the name of Jesus may be glorified in me.
