EDITOR’S COMMENT:

My great-grandfather presumed to know more than he did.  What, for example, happens between a person and God after that person dies?  I, unlike, my great-grandfather, do not deny the possibility of extra grace between one’s earthly demise and one’s judgment in the afterlife.

THE FEAST OF SAINT BENEDICT OF NURSIA, FATHER OF WESTERN MONASTICISM

Luke 13, 24

1.  Man is hastening to the day that shall seal his eternal doom.  He will be judged according to his works.  The record is forever unalterable then.

2.  Two classes will compose that mighty company–those who will be approved & those who will will be rejected.  “One shall be taken, the other left.”  It is an individual affair.  All may obtain mercy, but some will not seek it till too late.  “The saddest is,/It might have been.”

3.  Someone will be turned away from the beautiful gate because too late.  Will it be you?  To be sure about it you must seek Him now, while He offers mercy.  Who will be turned away?

4.  Therefore strive to enter in now.  Put off salvation no longer, lest you go one step too far.  Some offer of mercy will be the last one.  Are you sure this is not it?  Make sure work for heaven; your all for time and eternity is involved.
