On returning to God

If sinners only knew that they were the work of God and the pleasure of His heart:  "We are His workmanship," (Eph. 2:10).  If the sinner was sure that his rank in God's eyes was foremost among the cares of the Almighty and his dispensation from eternity, and that the mind of God had been preoccupied throughout the ages with his returning, and that the entire heaven waited in expectation for his return, he would never be ashamed of himself, condemn his ability, or procrastinate about his return.  Matthew the Poor, The Communion of Love
