Sin Can Find Us

"They are well kept whom God keeps,
but woe unto those who go forth into the world,
or even dare to walk their own house unarmed.
Those who think themselves secure
Are more exposed to the danger than any others.
The armour-bearer of Sin
is Self-confidence.
In stagnant waters noxious creatures swarm,
And neglected soil soon yields a dense tangle of weeds and briars. Oh for the constraining love
of Jesus
to keep us active and useful!
Satan can climb housetops,
And enter closets,
And even if we could shut out that foul fiend,
Our own corruptions are enough to work our ruin
Unless Grace prevent."
- C.H. Spurgeon
