Sermons: Bearing on Subjects of the Day
THOUGH God created the heavens and the earth in six days, and then rested, yet He rested only to begin a work of another kind; for our Lord says, “My Father worketh hitherto,” and He adds, “and I work.” And at another time He says, concerning Himself more expressly, “I must work the works of Him that sent Me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” And when that night came, He said, “I have finished the work which Thou gavest Me to do.” “It is finished.” And in the text we are told generally of all men, “Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.” The Creator wrought till the Sabbath came; the Redeemer wrought till the sun was darkened, and it was night. “The sun ariseth,” and “man goeth forth,” and works “till the evening;” when “the keepers of the house tremble, and the strong men bow themselves, and those that look out at the windows are darkened, and desire fails, because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets;” when “the silver cord is loosed, and the golden bowl is broken, and the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns unto God who gave it.”

man trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again, that as
he is Christ's, even so are we Christ's.” And in like manner our Saviour, “Judge
No outward rite indeed can measure the great dignity of the gift of regeneration;
were the outward ceremonies ever so laborious they would not be adequate; a
simple rite, on the other hand, is a symbol of the freeness of the grace given us, ...
God forbid! for we can but judge by outward appearance, and God alone seeth
the hearts of men. But we are expressly told that there are persons so destined;
we are told that the finally impenitent, whoever they shall be, are so destined; and
