But , careless sinner , learn that thy salvation now hangs in God's hand . Oh , remember thou art entirely in the hand of God . Thou hast sinned against him , and if he wills to damn thee , damned thou art . Thou canst not resist his will nor thwart his purpose . Thou hast deserved his wrath , and if he chooses to pour the full shower of that wrath upon thy head , thou canst do nothing to avert it . If , on the other hand , he chooses to save thee , he is able to save thee to the very uttermost . But thou liest as much in his hand as the summer's moth beneath thine own finger . He is the God whom thou art grieving every day . Doth it not make thee tremble to think that thy eternal destiny now hangs upon the will of him whom thou hast angered and incensed ? Dost not this make thy knees knock together , and thy blood curdle ? If it does so I rejoice , inasmuch as this may be the first effect of the Spirit's drawing in thy soul . Oh , tremble to think that the God whom thou hast angered , is the God upon whom thy salvation or thy condemnation entirely depends . Tremble and " kiss the Son lest he be angry and ye perish from the way while his wrath is kindled but a little ."
