At Peace With Himself

I once met a man who told me that he had never injured anyone, had never done any wrong, and was no worse than others. But this man was at peace with himself, and not at all at peace with God.
Do you also, as this man, speak of having a good heart? If so, it is because you have never been by faith in the presence of God. Your thought from morning till night is, how you can please yourself or others, rather than God.
Are you at peace with yourself or at peace with God? Have you no Savior, no Jesus? "For there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:1212Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12).
Do you happen to say, "Oh, you make the gospel to be too easy?"
Was it easy for Christ, who went into judgment that He "should taste death for every man" (Heb. 2:99But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. (Hebrews 2:9))? Is it an easy thing for you to take your place as a sinner and to judge sin? "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Rom. 3:2323For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23).
If you in this world refuse Christ, Christ must deny you; as He has said, "He that denieth Me before men shall be denied before the angels of God."
