Salvation from Hell—or from sin?

(Charles Spurgeon)

"You shall call His name Jesus—for He will save His people from their sins." Matthew 1:21

The mere professor loves a salvation from Hell.

The true Christian loves a salvation from sin.

Everyone desires to be saved from the bottomless pit—but only a child of God pants to be saved from every false way. We love the Gospel because it saves us . . .
  from selfishness,
  from pride,
  from lust,
  from worldliness,
  from bitterness,
  from malice,
  and from sloth.

"Because I consider all Your precepts to be right, I hate every wrong path." Psalm 119:128
