Rev. David Martin
O Lamb of God! who hast sacrificed Thyself for us, condescend to accept this trifle dedicated to Thy glory. O Jesus, Head of all principalities and powers! King of Kings and Lord of Lords! bless the book, and make it a blessing to millions. Guided by Thy grace, may multitudes be led to read it; and as they read do Thou, as of old, breathe upon their souls the Holy Ghost: that reading they may remember; remembering they may reflect; that the seed of Thine own truth may become rooted, and grow up to be vigorous plants of righteousness and peace.
O Jesus, Saviour of Sinners, who didst promise to draw all unto Thee when lifted up, deign to draw multitudes by this magnet from sin and Satan and death to Thyself, to Thy Father, and to eternal glory.
“O what shall I do my Saviour to praise,
"Whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be My disciple." –Luke xiv. 33.
Give thyself to Jesus, and from Him, as from an infinite fountain, will flow into you an eternal stream of light, life, love, and blessedness, forever and forever.
"The love of Christ, which passeth knowledge." –Ephes. iii. 19.
The love of Jesus is not only a life study, but an immortal study. Could you live to the age of Methuselah, and were it your sole occupation to contemplate this love, you could not see it in all its endless varieties and unfoldings. Should it be your unutterable privilege to reach heaven, and study it in the light of glory, as the ages roll on you will be no nearer to the height of it. Could you converse with every angel, and hear their testimony, or listen to the story of every redeemed soul recounting its wonders, you would still be immeasurably behind the mark; it will for ever be the love which passeth knowledge. Blessed, brilliant, rapturous prospect! feasting on this love for ever.
"Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? " –John vi. 67.
What a painful, humiliating spectacle is a deserter, handcuffed, and marched off between bayonets, to be flogged, drummed out of the regiment, or shot! But more pitiable is the sight of a deserter from Jesus. What a Master to leave! What a Prince to rebel against! What love to slight! What threatenings to despise! What prospects for the future! Ah! ye who have left off to be wise and do good, return to your loving Lord, and He will have mercy, and abundantly pardon.
