The Gospel is preached unto you now, my brethren; this is a certain truth, of which you are witnesses. The Lord, who designs to give peace to your souls, offers you reconciliation. I display all his mercies before you. This fact, I repeat, you can see and hear, and you can bear witness to its truth. The Gospel is preached unto you. Ah! I doubt not that the angels of God are rejoicing that such a favor is granted unto you; and what joy would there be in heaven if one soul awoke at the sound of this proclamation, and formed an eternal covenant with God, sealed with the blood of Jesus Christ! The Gospel is preached unto you; give ear to this publication. Henceforth you can not stand before the throne in any other character than as having had his gospel of peace announced to you at his command. Oh! May He never have to say to you, in allusion to this hour, “I would have gathered you together, and ye would not!” [Matt 23:37]
The Lord fulfils his work toward you. The Lord causes his pardon to be proclaimed unto you. Receive it then with joy! The Gospel is preached unto you. God grant that, throughout eternity, you may bless the hour when you heard it! May it be the instrument of saving your souls! Amen.
