Save Me Lord!

Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.    Jeremiah 17:14

1802 -1869Here is this sin! Save me from it!—Here is this snare! Break it to pieces!—Here is this lust! Lord, subdue it!—Here is this temptation! Deliver me out of it!—Here is my proud heart! Lord, humble it!—Here is my unbelieving heart!  Take it away, and give me faith—give me submission to Your mind and will. Take me as I am with all my sin and shame and work in me everything well pleasing in Your sight.

 J. C. Philpot (1802 – 1869)

About Greg Coleman

I am a Particular Baptist who affirms the absolute sovereignty of the triune Godhead in all things. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the God-man Jesus Christ. He is the Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, Disposer and Judge of all that ever was, is now or ever shall be. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men. He was made to be sin for his people and saved them from their sins by his substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross thereby satisfying the justice and wrath of God against them. The sufficiency of his death to the satisfaction of God’s justice is proven by his physical resurrection from the dead and enthronement in glory at the right hand of the Father. Jesus Christ is coming again to judge the living and the dead. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.
