Fellow mortals, your time of preparation may be far more brief than you now think. A few, very few more opportunities for prayer, and reconciliation with God, and your account is sealed up. While you hesitate, the recording angel may be writing your condemnation. In such circumstances, what are worldly honours, or wealth, or all your hopes of enjoyment here? The life, the eternal life of the soul, is the one thing needful—the only thing really important. You will realize this truth, when the last trumpet is sounding through the universe, and, with increasing agony or ecstasy, millions of ages after the final sentence is pronounced. O, then, consider it now. Prepare for that judgment, now. To-morrow! where is it? Repent to-morrow! You may have far other work to do. God, and conscience, and your immortal interests plead, “To-day, if you will hear his voice, harden not your heart.” “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. For he cometh, for he cometh, to judge the world, in righteousness to judge the earth, and the people with his truth.
