he may be found. And are you willing to offend such a benefactor; to spurn from you all his offers of mercy? You say, No.

But when will you seek the Lord? To-morrow? Next year? In a dying hour? And do you think this a good resolution? What! a good resolution, not to repent now, as God commands? A good resolution, not to seek the Lord now, while he may be found? A good resolution, to persevere in sin as long as you can with impunity?

Behold, now is the accepted time; now the Lord is graciously near; and if you delay to seek his favor this day, this hour, both heaven and earth, and your own conscience also, must confess the justice of God, should he call you no more, but leave you to perish in your iniquity. Is it your resolution to seek him now with all your heart? May the Spirit of grace strengthen that resolution, and help you to seek the Lord with right views of his character, deeply sensible of your misery, and anxiously desiring to embrace him in his entire character, and on his own terms, as your Savior, your God, and everlasting portion. Think not that the Spirit will always strive with you; that God will always be entreating you; or that you can, either now or at any other time, deceive him with heartless services. In a matter of such infinite moment, there must be no misgiving, no hypocrisy, no delay; "for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever."

TESTIMONIALS.

From the Quarterly Christian Spectator.

"We do not hesitate to say, that Mr. Dickinson has adopted one of the happiest expedients hitherto devised, for eliciting that diversity of gifts,' in the Christian ministry, which infinite wisdom and benevolence have bestowed for the edification of the body of Christ, and for bringing sinners to the foot of the cross."

From Professors of Princeton Theological Seminary.

The plan, proposed by the Rev. AUSTIN DICKINSON, of publishing a Monthly Series of Sermons, from the pens of respectable ministers of different denominations of Christians in the United States, is one, which, in our opinion, may be rendered highly interesting, and extensively useful. We do therefore willingly recommend the undertaking to the patronage of the Christian community. A. ALEXANDER. SAMUEL MILLER.
