during this life you may walk in the of light of God's truth, and escape the snares and
deceits of the Devil and the chains and slavery of sin, and finally may not be ashamed
before Christ at His coming to judge the world 1 in righteousness. For "2
we must all be made manifest before the judgement-seat of Christ. To Him has been given
"the Name 3 which is above every name; that in the name of Jesus every
knee should bow, of things in heaven and things on earth and things under the earth, and
that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the
Father". Someday you must kneel before Him; why not now?
We bring you the good news of His love, which led Him to lay down His life for you, who
as yet do not believe in Him, as truly as for those 4 who have already become
His disciples. He now offers you freely the gift 5 of salvation, the assurance
of God's forgiveness and grace to serve Him in newness of life, and finally a place in the
many mansions 6 in God's immediate presence in the Heavenly Places, into which
nothing that defiles 7 can enter.
Pray therefore, my brother, that God may guide you aright and lead you to a right
decision in this great matter ere it is too late. Thus you will be on God's side in the
great contest between truth and falsehood, right and wrong. So shall you find the Truth in
Him who is the Way, 8 the Truth and the Life: and, having here walked daily
with Him and received into your heart that peace which the world cannot give, being freed
from the fear of death and hell, you will be able to look forward with gladness to a
glorious Resurrection. And when He comes again to judge the world in righteousness, you
shall receive from His pierced hand the crown of everlasting life.
