Deliverance from Evil   1 comment

Matt. 6, 13

1.  Evil–wrong dispositions and deeds.  Is in the heart, hence in the life.  It is a disturber of peace and enslaves us.

2.  Deliver us–liberate us.

(1)  Pardon past transgression–this delivers from guilt.

(2)  Help us resist evil–this keeps us in peace and liberty.  He will lead safely.  All this he in mercy does for us.  His grace is sufficient for us in all things.  We must lean implicitly on him.

3.  But we must help answer our prayer–must put ourselves in line with the right.  Must work out our salvation.

(1)  Must commit our all to him for pardon and peace.

(2)  Then trust in his grace.  Human weakness is insufficient.  “Trust also in him and he shall bring it to pass.”

(3)  Overcome evil with good.  Yet righteousness so fills the heart that there will be no room for sin.  By all possible diligence overcome evil.
