for his own sake

for my own sake, for my own sake, i do it,
for how should my name be profaned?

my glory i will not give to another.
isaiah 48:11esv

"there are times when we all can do nothing but cast ourselves on his infinite grace and say, 'save me for your own name's sake'. and when we have been overcome by sin, it is good to go to him and say, 'father, i have nothing to plead but your own nature and name declared in jesus; for his sake, because you have made a promise to him and to me in him; for your glory's sake defer your anger, forgive my sins; save me for your own name's sake.'"
F.B. MEYER
