Excerpt from Serious Reflections on Time and Eternity
We may be cut while we presume on here after, while we resolve to repent, in the midst of our holy purposes, before they are performed, for, though we read in Scripture of the sinner of a hundred years old, that he shall be accursed, yet have we no example of one in a thousand that live to that age. This young person, whose funeral occasioned my discourse, not many days since, was as strong and healthful, and as likely to live as any of us; and it is a very great question, whether you and I may have so much time and space, to repent upon a sick bed, as he had, who enjoyed his senses and the use of his reason to the very last. This day, therefore, cannot be too soon to prepare, because to-morrow may be too late: every unprepared sinner being ex posed to as many hazards of everlasting destruction, as there may be accidents to surprise him with a sudden death.
