A little drop of purity in the midst of impurity
(Letters of J. C. Philpot)
How mysterious is the life of God in the soul.
It seems like a little drop of purity in the midst
We shall always find sin to be our worst enemy,
and self our greatest foe. We need not fear
anything but sin--nothing else can do us any
real injury. Though the Lord in tender mercy
forgives His erring wandering children, yet He
makes them all deeply feel that indeed it is
an evil and a bitter thing to sin against Him.
