“Do not be like the horse or like the mule, which have no understanding, which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, else they will not come near you.” Psalm 32:9
“If you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear.” 1 Peter 1:17
To The Lost
Reader, do you believe that there is a God and that He will shortly judge you for every evil action you have done, and for all the secret iniquity of your bosom? How then can you meet your Judge, unless your heart be changed and your sins pardoned? There will be no opportunity of dissembling, excusing, or escaping them. Begin, therefore, in time, to consider how you must appear before that awful judgment seat. The door of mercy is yet open. Call upon the Lord Jesus for repentance and pardon before the door shall be shut, and you be lost forever.
Now — but now only, is the accepted time; now is the day of salvation. You have rejected Christ hitherto; you have neglected the great salvation, it may be. Let me, then, beseech you to consider the question which the apostle proposes: “How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation?” How? There is no sacrifice for sin but the one offering of Jesus; there is no remedy for human guilt or misery but His precious blood; there is no coming to God with acceptance but by Him. How then will you escape if you live and die neglecting Him?
