That Message Did It

It was in one of our after-meetings that one of our young men approached a very intelligent young man and asked him if he were saved. His answer was,
"I thought until tonight I was all right, but, that message did it; yes, it stripped me of all my good works; for I have been a Sunday school teacher and very religious, and had hoped to get to Heaven on my good deeds, but I saw tonight 'that he that offendeth in one point is guilty of all,' and that my righteousness is as filthy rags, and I am unsaved." He was asked if he desired to be saved, and his answer was,
"Yes, for I see I am lost."
"For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost;" also Rom. 5:66For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. (Romans 5:6),

He was then asked,
"Who is without strength?" He said,
"Me, for I am without strength, and not able to save myself." He was asked,
"Who did Christ die for?" His answer was,
"For the ungodly, and I know I am ungodly." He was then taken to another portion, found in 1 Tim. 1:1515This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. (1 Timothy 1:15), which he read as follows,
"Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief." He was asked,
"Who did Christ Jesus come into the world to save ?" He answered,
"But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His Name." With that he was asked if he would receive Christ. He thought, and said,
"Yes, I will receive Him and become a son of God, for God's Word says so."
With that he bowed down and thanked God for saving him. The Word of God says,
