Repentance: (Thorough): Searches Out Sin

Resource Toolbox


When a wound in a soldier's foot refuses to heal, the surgeon examines it very minutely, and manipulates every part. Each bone is there, and in its place; there is no apparent cause for the inflammation, but yet the wound refuses to heal. The surgeon probes and probes again, until his lancet comes into contact with a hard foreign substance. 'Here it. is,' saith he, 'a bullet is lodged here; this must come out, or the wound will never close.' Thus may some concealed sin work long disquiet in a. seeking soul. May the Lord search us and try us, and see if there be any evil way in us, and. lead us in the way everlasting.
