Ignorance of Growth in Grace

by on October 20, 2011

“A little proper Sunday church-going or chapel-going makes up the sum and substance of their Christianity. They are without spiritual life, and of course they cannot at present grow. Are you one of these people? If you are, you are in a pitiable condition.

Years are slipping away and time is flying. Graveyards are filling up and families are thinning. Death and judgment are getting nearer to us all. And yet you live like one asleep about your soul! What madness! What folly! What suicide can be worse than that?

Awake before it’s too late; awake, and arise from the dead and live to God. Turn to Him who is sitting at the right hand of God, to be your Saviour and Friend. Turn to Christ, and cry mightily to Him about your soul there is yet hope! He that called Lazarus from the grave is not changed. He that commanded the widow’s sone at Nain to arise from his bier can do miracles yet for you soul. Seek Him at once: seek Christ, if you would not be lost for ever. Do not stand still talking and meaning, and intending, and wishing, and hoping. Seek Christ that you may live, and that living you may grow.”
