Would We Empty a Pen?


Joseph Alleine, a puritan of the 16 th Century, wrote a book called, Alarm to the Unconverted. In it, his zeal for the unconverted is very evident. Listen to his heart as he prepares to plead with the sinner: "But from whence shall I fetch my argument? With what shall I win them? Oh, that I could tell! I would write to them in tears, I would weep out every argument, I would empty my veins for ink, I would petition them on my knees. Oh how thankful I would be if they would be prevailed with to repent and turn." Listen to his concern for the lost-"I would empty my veins for ink." How many of us would empty a pen of ink, let alone blood, to warn a loved one or a friend to get right with God? Show that you care. Use today to reach out to the unsaved. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
