Sin cries out

‘And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.’ Genesis 18:20–21
SUGGESTED FURTHER READING: Isaiah 59:1–20

This is one of the many passages in which the Lord speaks after the manner of men. He is present in all places, and knows all things. But it intimates the exactness of his judicial proceedings, that he will not punish without cause, and that he exercises such forbearance and patience as will leave sinners without excuse. Sin has a voice, a cry. It cries for vengeance, like the blood of Abel. It is opposite to the perfections of God. His holiness, justice, truth and authority are called upon, provoked and defied by sin. Though he spare long, his honour would suffer if he did not at length take notice of it. Ah my friends, you little know what you do, when you allow yourselves in a course of sin against the great God who has power to destroy both soul and body in hell.
FOR MEDITATION:
Ah, what can I do,
And must I then go,
Or where be secure!
Forever to dwell
If justice pursue
In torments and woe
What heart can endure!
With devils in hell?
When GOD speaks in thunder,
Oh where is the Saviour
And makes himself known,
I scorned in times past?
The heart breaks asunder
His word in my favour
Though hard as a stone.
Would save me at last.

With terror I read
Lord JESUS, on thee
My sins heavy score,
I venture to call,
The numbers exceed
Oh look upon me
The sands on the shore;
The vilest of all!
Guilt makes me unable
For whom didst thou languish,
To stand or to flee,
And bleed on the tree?
So Cain murdered Abel,
Oh pity my anguish,
And trembled like me.
And say, ‘’Twas for thee’.
