The New Zealand Evangelist

God Desires to Save

God Desires to Save.

God swears by himself that he hath no pleasure in your death. That he may prevail upon you to trust him, he tries every expedient. He does all that tenderness can devise to remove your suspicion, and to cheer you on to a confidence in his goodwill. He pleads the matter with you. He beseeches you to accept of reconciliation. He offers it as a gift. Rather than lose you for ever, he sent his Son to pour out his soul unto death for you. And now that iniquity is put an end to; now that an everlasting righteousness is brought in; now that every attribute of his nature has been magnified by the great sacrifice; now that the weight of that heavy burden has been done away; now that there is nothing to intercept the flow of friendship from God to man,—does it come down free as the light of day, and rich as the exuberance of heaven, upon a despairing world.
