Be Ye Also Ready   1 comment

EDITOR’S NOTE:

I do not restrict my estimate of the timeframe of God’s grace to when one has breath.

My great-grandfather focused too much on the individual (especially in matters of sin) and too little on societal, structural issues (especially in matters of sin).  I have just revealed my Neo-orthodoxy.

Matt. 24, 44

1.  Man confronts an eternity of happiness or woe.  Death the door of entrance to it.  This his only probation.

2.  It is man’s one business here to prepare for the future–the greatest, all-engrossing question.  Who risks all will lose all at last.  Take no risk.

3.  He only is ready who is at peace with God–conscious of pardon.  If you do not possess this grace, seek it right now.  If you have it live it every day–stay at the post of duty.  O happy servant he in such a posture found.

4.  His coming will be unexpected by the sinner.  “My Lord tarrieth?”  It is a solemn thing to be called to meet him; no light affair.  The soul’s destiny is unalterable then.

5.  No matter how hard one must strive in order to live right, they will be glad of it.  Then we may have daily satisfaction from it too.  “Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.”  Heaven will be cheap at any price.

6.  Will you heed His admonition?

Seek His favor and live right every day.
