jer 08v20 The Harvest is Past The Summer Ended and We Are Not Saved
"THE HARVEST IS PAST, THE SUMMER" IS ENDED, AND WE ARE NOT SAVED." Jeremiah 8:20
Is this your sad condition? Another year has been spent running from God, in rebellion to Christ. Three hundred and sixty five days of grace have been mockingly despised. You have been warned of God's impending judgment. The way of life has been clearly set before you. Yet, you are not saved. The gospel of the grace of God has been preached in your hearing in the power of the Spirit. Christ has been evidently set before you, in the glory of his all-sufficient, substitutionary work. You know his rightful claims upon you as Lord. Yet, you are not saved. How long do you think God will tolerate your willful unbelief? How many more years do you expect to live upon God's earth, robbing him of his glory and mocking his grace? How many more days? Soon you will draw your last breath. You will stand before God in judgment. I am free of your blood. I have preached the gospel to you. Yet, you are not saved. You are without excuse!
Will you ever be saved? The best means have failed to impress you. The gospel of God's grace does not move you. The law of God does not frighten you. The love of God in Christ does not influence your heart. Like Felix, you await a more convenient season. How foolish your stubborn, hard heart is! A more convenient season will never come. "Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." Yet, you are content to go on without Christ, without God, without hope. You are content to remain not saved! I fear for your immortal soul.
Suppose you should die unsaved, as it appears you will, no words can describe your terrible woe. You will be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord. Oh, may God awaken you! Be wise. Before this day is over, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, who is able to save to the uttermost, and be saved.
