21 SEPTEMBER (PREACHED OLNEY FAIR DAY)

How willing Jesus is to save

‘And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.’ Revelation 20:12
SUGGESTED FURTHER READING: John 5:16–30

Think how Jesus has loved you. You might have been cut off in your sins. You might (and would, had not he prevented you with his grace) have gone on hardened and blinded till you perished with a lie in your right hand [Isaiah 44:20]. But now you have hope and can think of this great day without dismay—or if you feel a fear, you know it is your infirmity (2 Timothy 1:12, Nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day).
But this, I fear, is not the case of all. Perhaps you have never thought of this before. See you take warning now. I hope some are thinking, How shall we escape? [Hebrews 2:3]. I direct you to that other book—the Gospel. There you may read and learn how able, how willing, Jesus is to save. He came into the world, he suffered, he died, he rose again, for this very purpose. Beware you do not stifle these thoughts. Perhaps vain company are waiting for you, or will seek you, to spend the rest of the evening in folly. But will you destroy your own soul? Will you sin against the light? Break from them as from a house where you expect to meet the plague. Consider you have a soul to be saved. Will you trifle upon the pit’s brink? Rather, humble yourself before the Lord, pray for pardon, grace, and his Holy Spirit, that you may with him here stand with boldness in judgement and be received into his kingdom to dwell with him for ever.
FOR MEDITATION:
Now my soul knows what to do;
If thou help a foolish worm
Thus I shall with boldness stand,
To believe thy promise now;
Numbered with the faithful few,
Justice will at last confirm
Owned and saved, at thy right hand:
What thy mercy wrought below.

SERMON: REVELATION 20:11–12 [6/6] [EASTER MONDAY EVENING]
