From Death to Life in an Instant

“…let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” – Revelation 22:17

It does not take so long to save a soul as it does for a lightening flash to become visible. You pass from death to life in an instant. When lost, ruined, condemned, the man casts himself at Christ’s feet, immediately he is saved. It is not the work of hours or weeks or years when you trust to the finished work of Christ. All that required time Christ has accomplished. All that now has to be done can be done in a moment. When a man is thirsty it does not take him long to drink when the water is there. Remember the invitation with which the Scriptures must conclude, “Let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” The water of life is there, take it. When a man is hungry it does not take him long to eat when the bread is on the table. God can now give you, who came to this Tabernacle afar off from Him, grace which shall enable you to be made nigh at once. He can bring you immediately out of the blackness of sin, and make you on the instant “whiter than snow.”

Believe my Lord and Master. Oh, why do you not believe Him? Artful doubts and reasonings cease! I would now take the hammer and the nails, and fasten my unbelief and fear to Christ’s cross. Hang there, ye thieves, and die! You destroy men’s souls, ye doubts and reasonings! Come here, simple faith, thou who hast no wisdom! A mere child thou art, but; O simple faith, thou hast the key of the kingdom! Come, and welcome, into my heart. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
