Look! how we have sowed here on earth; we shall reap for eternity!
Reader, these are things which above all others, deserve most of, and call loudest for our utmost care and endeavors; though they are least minded, by most people.
Consider what a spirit of atheism (if we may judge the tree by the fruits and the principle by the practice) the hearts of most men are filled with, who live, as if God were not to be served, nor Christ to be sought, nor lust to be mortified, nor self to be denied, nor the Scripture to be believed, nor the judgment-day to be minded, nor hell to be feared, nor heaven to be desired, nor the soul to be valued;but give up themselves to a worse than brutish sensuality, "Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more!" (Ephesians 4:19). This is a reflection fit enough to break our hearts!
