Escape Now!

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. – John 3:36

You cannot continue in wilful sin and yet become a believer; sin cherished in the heart is an effectual hindrance. A man cannot be tied to a post and yet run away at the same time; if you bind yourself to your sin, you cannot escape…Get you to your knees, get you to solitude, get you to your God, get, you to Jesus Christ; He it is that will roll away the stone which blocks the door.

And, once again, do remember that till you have believed, your danger is of the most imminent kind. You are not in danger of something future only, you are in peril even now, for the wrath of God abideth on you. You are not like a city which is to be attacked by troops yet at a distance: the Judge is even at the door. You are actually besieged. The foes have encompassed you round about; they lift the scaling ladders, they will soon scale the walls. Beware, O sinner, beware, for thy present state is terrible; thy future state will be hopeless. Today is the accepted time. Now or never it is with some of you-now escape for your lives: now seek, but seek in the right way, by believing in Him who is the Savior of the sons of men.

“Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth.” It is the cry of the crucified Savior. Turn not away from that dear voice so full of anguish, hide not your eyes from that brow still marked with the thorn-crown, despise not those nailed hands and feet, but yield to Him as again He cries in agony of love, “Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth.” O Lord, do Thou turn them, and they shall be turned. Amen. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
