Ho, every one that thirsts, come you to the waters, and he that has no money; come you, buy, and eat…
You may have seen persons in a shop who, when they have been shown almost all the contents of the shop, — when article after article has been brought down from the shelves for their inspection, have at last, to the no small disappointment of the shopkeeper, gone out without buying anything. And we who have the Gospel wares to dispose of, are subject to like disappointments. We also have customers who, when they have looked at, and turned over, so to speak, again and again, the goods which we offer them, as though they would make an offer for them, content themselves with the looking at them, hear and listen to the Gospel, that you would think they were going to embrace it, yet go out of Church, ah! and out of the world, without embracing it.
(W. Cleaves, M. A.)
