Too Fast

HIGHWAY patrolmen stopped a speeding driver near Missoula, Montana. "Oh, thank you, officer," said the driver's wife. "I've been telling him all the way over from Helena that he was driving too fast."
He had been breaking the law for 112 miles, and for 112 miles he had been warned about it. But he evidently paid no attention to these warnings and was at last stopped by the police.
Multitudes today are speeding down the broad way that leads to destruction. They are being constantly warned about it by God's Word, by His servants who speak in the pulpit, on the street, over the air. They are warned by gospel tracts handed to them. God sometimes has to speak to them through some accident or sickness, but still they rush headlong down to destruction. And then what happens to them after this brief life is over?
They must meet God someday. Death plays no favorites: each year, millions of people die in the world. Each day, many thousands. When will your turn come?
No one knows but God. How imperative therefore to stop, stop now, immediately, before you do anything else, and accept God's invitation.
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isa. 1:1818Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:18).)
Remember: there is a way to keep out of hell, but there is no way to get out of it.
