BEFORE I wind up this discourse, I would lay down these few things for you to consider and meditate upon. 1. Consider, that seeing all and every one by nature are accounted sinners, it is no matter whether thy actual sins be little or great, few or many; thy sinful nature hath already laid thee under the curse of the law. 2. Consider, that therefore thou hast already ground for humiliation, sins to repent of, wrath to fly from, or a soul to be damned. 3. Consider, that time stays not for thee, and also that as time goes, sin increaseth; so that at last the end of thy time, and the completing of thy sin, are like to come upon thee in one moment. 4. Bring thy last day often to thy bed-side, and ask thy heart, If this morning thou wast to die, if thou be ready to die or no? 5. Know it is a sad thing to lie a dying, and to be afraid to die; to lie a dying, and not to know whither thou art going; to lie a dying, and not to know whether good angels or bad must conduct thee out of this miserable world. 6. Be often remembering what a blessed thing it is to be saved, to go to heaven, to be made like angels, and to dwell with God and Christ to all eternity. 7. Consider how sweet the thought of salvation will be to thee, when thou seest thyself in heaven, whilst others are roaring in hell.
