Hypocrites Pretend Godliness (“The Godly Man’s Picture” by Thomas Watson – Part 14)

“Christian, if you mourn for hypocrisy, yet find this sin so potent that you cannot get the mastery of it, go to Christ. Beg of him that he would exercise his kingly office in your soul, that he would subdue this sin, and put it under the yoke. Beg of Christ to exercise his spiritual surgery upon you. Desire him to lance your heart and cut out the rotten flesh, and that he would apply the medicine of his blood to heal you of your hypocrisy. Say that prayer of David often: ‘Let my heart be sound in thy statures’ (Ps. 119:80) ‘Lord, let me be anything rather than a hypocrite.’ Two hearts will exclude from one heaven.” (Chapter 3, p. 19)
