C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

A young girl comes up missing, in a foreign land
There are those of us who could care less, and those that lend a hand

A momma’s crying, and a daddy weeps
And praying people, fall to their knees
To talk to God about, one lost soul

Yet across the miles sit those that judge, she deserves what she got
She shouldn’t have been there or did what she did, they use words that hurt a lot
To a parent that has lost, a soul

Perspective moves our emotions, and causes us to think
For one thing or against another, it can drive us to the brink
To the edge of hatred or the line of love, it can pull us across
We can judge another with curse or praise, without even a cause

We sit in comfort as we talk about, things that happen to another
Would we be so cold or so ambitious, if it were our sister or brother
Would we call them a sinner, or saint out loud

Do any of us deserve any better, for decisions we’ve made in our lives
Have we lost all compassion for one another, is selfishness on the rise
Would you care if someone tells, your sins to the crowd

Perspective is how we see things, that someone may see different
It forces us to speak our thoughts, it can cause union or division
To love your neighbor as yourself, makes us take a deeper look
For what would we want others to say, if our life were an open book

Does the murdered deserve death, what of the woman that’s been raped
What about the child that’s missing, because someone decided to take
What could he’d done that couldn’t be forgiven, why take what she wanted to keep
The child might have said they would run away, but now they’re out of reach

Perspective without knowledge, with no wisdom within sight
We speak our mind without repercussions, because we think that we are right
Not caring about those it hurts, or whether it is valid
Remember one day it could involve you, don’t let your heart grow callused

A young girl comes up missing, in your neighborhood
Would you just sit there and say she deserved it, or help find her if you could?

John Bunyan

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
