Repentance—Thoroughly—Searches Out Sin – Charles Spurgeon
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 far the inflammation, but yet the wound re- fuses 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.
