Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1847 edition. Excerpt: ...and hosts of such glorious spiritual heroes and heroines, for its members? A family, which, even now, contains within its various branches nearly all the moral beauty, the worth, the excellency of our common nature? From this family of God, will you, lamb of Jesus, stand aloof? O, as you value your soul, do not be so unpardonably foolish! It will be a " fight" to reach heaven in the church; out of it, it will be almost a certain forfeiture of your glowing hopes. Therefore, I say again to thee, young convert, join the church and join it directly. The lukewarm professor will tell you to wait awhile. Satan will whisper the same exhortation to delay. "Prove yourself; see if you hold out first; put your new experience to the test a little longer: then join the church;" will be the syren song the Tempter will sing in your heart. Heed not that song as you desire to persevere. Should the young lamb prefer the snow-bank in the chilly month of March, to the warm fold of the Shepherd? Would that be the way to insure its own existence? True, if it lived on the snow bank, it would in the fold; but the probability ig, it would die A there. So i f you maintain your piety out of the church, for a given period, you may be likely to retain it in her bosom; but you run a fearful risk. Your piety in its infant state, needs all the nourishment, sympathy and restraint, that can be brought to its maintenance. If there is any benefit in a church relation, you need to enjoy it, in the beginning of your experience. Hasten then, my dear friend, without a moment's delay, to your pastor, class-leader or deacon, and place yourself in the church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Having once joined the church, you must set a high estimate on your church relation. Value it very highly....
