The Dangerous Hour in Which We Live |

TBC Staff

“Doth not God now warn you? Is it not dangerous living one hour in a state that we would not die in? May not God strike us on the sudden? Do but purpose to live in sin one quarter of an hour and may we not be taken away in that quarter? Is not repentance the gift of God and are not gifts given according to the good pleasure of the giver? Wait therefore for the gales of grace, and take them when they are offered. Grace is not like the tide, that ebbs and flows, that we know when it will come again and we will see it go. No! God gives gales of grace according to his good pleasure; therefore take advantage of the present motions of the blessed Spirit” 

--Richard Sibbes (1577-1635)
