An Awful Thing to Reject

The Great Commission of Jesus Christ

It is an awful thing, then, for a poor, helpless, perishing sinner to reject, even for a day or an hour, the overtures of Him who has all authority in heaven and on earth, and who will certainly judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom, when He “shall come in flaming fire, taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel; who shall be punished with an everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power, when He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe” (2 Thess. 1:7-10). Haste, then—

“Haste, O sinner, to be wise
Stay not for the morrow’s sun;
Wisdom warns thee from the skies,
All the paths of death to shun.”
