It is a serious thing for men to neglect their own salvation, and it is a legitimate thing to reason with them on the hopelessness of the condition which such a neglect involves. But there is something deeper than this presented here; it is the neglect of God's salvation—the neglect of that intervention of mercy which can alone render it possible for any sinner to appear in the presence of God. This is another idea than the neglect of my own well-being. It is the neglect of God, of His glory, of His holiness, of His authority, of His grace, of His love, of the provisions of His mercy, the neglect of the salvation accomplished in sorrow and suffering by His only begotten Son, which is now proclaimed through the testimony of the Holy Spirit sent down from above.
