THE SINNER WARNEDBY CALVIN CHAPIN, Genesis, xix. 17.  — Escape for thy life — HEARERS, it is written, * W'hoso putteth his trust in the Lord, shall be safe.'

A change of condition must be experienced. The very nature, as well as manner, of the command implies, that the subject ot it is interesting and deserves speedy attention. But, here sinners^ you are, perhaps, saying in your iiearts ; * Is it not suiiiciently well with us, as we are ? Escaping belongs indeed to those who are in danger. But who is he that shall disturb our peace? With what terrors shall any make us afraid ? We perceive yio danger. What occasion then, have we of escap-ing — of seeking a condition dilTerent from our pre-lient ?
