What a treacherous foe dwells in our bosom!
(Mary Winslow, "Words of Loving Counsel and Sympathy")
We live in a dangerous world — a world lying in wickedness! And when we remember what a treacherous foe dwells in our bosom, ever prompting us to evil — we need to cry mightily to God to save us from Satan, and from our own selves! "Hold me up — and I shall be safe!" Psalm 119:117
I have lately had a very sweet humbling view of my own hateful self — and a soul-melting view of the wonderful and over-whelming goodness of God, in loving and saving one so vile! "Christ died for the ungodly!" Romans 5:6
