Day of Judgment shall arrive, he shall be counted worthy to escape all those things which are coming on the earth, and to stand before the Son of Man: for he has not been a mere hearer of the word, but a doer of it. His faith in CHRIST has not been that faith which is without works, and which is dead, being alone; but it has been proved to have been true faith, by its fruits. His confession of sin has not been confession of the lip; but the real language of an humble, broken, and contrite heart: his love to his SAVIOUR has not consisted in saying "LORD, LORD;" but in doing the things which He hath commanded.

Being, therefore, thus safe, for life, for death, and for eternity, he may be likened unto a wise man who built his house upon a rock: and the rains descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house: and it fell not; for it was founded on a rock.

"But whosoever heareth these sayings of mine," says CHRIST," and doeth them not, I will liken him unto a foolish man, that built his house on the sand." It matters not what profession such a man has made; what doctrine he has heard; or what preacher he has followed. Only to hear even the best doctrine is not to build on the right foundation. His house is upon the sand: the religion of such an one is a slight and unsubstantial thing. It will not abide the test, when the storm comes, which is to try it; and there is a time approaching, when every one's building shall be tried. That fair edifice, with which he had for a while pleased himself, shall fail. All his high hopes and confidences shall be thrown down. The house, which he had reared to himself for eternity, shall fall; for he had built it on the sand and great shall be the fall thereof.
