pit” ? Can you believe that being “ pricked to the heartwill make the question less necessary,

“What must I do to be saved ?"

a

Two things have now been proved,—that you are in peril, and, that you cannot save yourself. It is therefore evident that you need a Saviour.

Accordingly there is a second question which ought to occupy your mind, “HAS THE SAVIOUR I NEED BEEN PROVIDED ?”

It is the design of the following pages to answer this question clearly and fully. This little volume gives you ample assurance that there is “a Name under heaven given among men, whereby you must be saved.” This name is the name of Jesus.

JESUS—the Son of God, co-equal with Him in existence, glory and power,--the great Object of angelic worship, the Maker of all worlds, the Centre of all attraction, for “of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things.”

JESUS—who beheld the misery of a lost and ruined world, and was moved with compassion by the sight of its woe, and the knowledge of its punishment: who determined to undertake the mighty task of reconciling it to God, and of rescuing from the grasp of the apostate spirit, the fair creation wherein man once had walked 11 pright and holy.

JESUS—who laying aside his glory, leaving his exalted throne, and assuming the likeness of man, came down to our world, and tabernacled among us ;-who was known as the Man of Sorrows, despised as the Carpenter's Son, forsaken as “stricken and smitten of God,” and was crucified as a malefactor by the sinners He came to save!

JESUS—who having thus finished the work given Him to do, ascended up on high, leading captivity captive, and receiving gifts for men,—the gift of eternal life for all who believe in Him, and the gift of the Holy Spirit that the believer might be sanctified, guided and brought at last safely to his presence in glory.

JESUS—the Saviour which you need-able to save you, willing to save you, waiting to save you. Have you a doubt of his ability ? examine the proofs, mark the assertions of his divinity, scrutinize the minute fulfilments of prophecy, and then acknowledge, “This is He that should come.” Have you a suspicion of his willingness ? is it possible? Can invitation be more ample, more affectionate, more earnest ? Can the declarations of the freeness of redeeming love be more explicit. “He is willing, doubt no more.” Can you forget that He is waiting to receive you ? “He waiteth to be gracious.” Exalted to the right hand of God, He yet liveth to intercede in the sinner's behalf. He is now looking down upon you with his smile of love, and saying to you by his Providence, his Ministers, his Word, and his Spirit, “Look unto Me and be

ye

saved.”

Reader, the Treasury is before you, the Key is in the Lock, and the rich store of promises is intended for you. Enter and look around,—this is He of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets did write; this is He to whom every Old Testament prediction pointed; this is He whom you need as the Saviour of your soul,- let this also be He of whom you can say,

“This is my Saviour and my Friend."
