Two Classes

However much we choose to divide mankind into races, religions, stations, or attainments, God recognizes only two classes. All that men cling to, and hold most dear, counts in His eyes as but little worth—just the small dust in His scales. The Scriptures define each class very minutely and conclusively, giving the character of each:
Class 1. THE LOST SINNER. "DEAD in trespasses and sins;... by nature the children of wrath" (Eph. 2:1-3). "All have sinned" (Rom. 3:23).
Class 2. THE SAVED SINNER. Christ "who knew no sin" was "made sin for us" (1 Peter 2:21, 2 Cor. 5:21). "We have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins." (Eph. 1:7).
Dear reader, to which class do you belong?
