Timeless Truths

"Now, I say, for the Scripture says, 'To-day is the accepted time, to-day is the day of salvation.' The only way to end your excuses is not by praying nor resolving, but by looking to Christ. There hangs the bleeding Savior on the cross, He dies the just for the unjust to bring us to God; He suffers there that sin may be forgiven. Look to Him, trust Him, and you shall be saved. My hearer, I give you now in God’s name this invitation, this command, trust your soul to Jesus, the Son of God, who suffered for sin, and you shall be saved. But mind this. I may never meet you all this side the grave, but I will meet you all at God’s great day, and if you receive not Christ and trust in Him, I am clear of your blood. Upon my skirts your doom cannot fall. You have heard the gospel, you have been told to trust Jesus as you are, you have been assured that He is able to save to the uttermost them that come to Him. You have been bidden to come, and now on your own heads He your soul’s rain if you come not. But may the Spirit of God take these things and apply them to your souls. May He be as a fire and as a hammer in your souls: as a fire to melt, or as a hammer to break; and may you today with brokenness of heart take Christ to be your Savior, both now and forever. Amen."
