during this life you may walk in the of light of God's truth, and escape the snares and deceits of the Devil and the chains and slavery of sin, and finally may not be ashamed before Christ at His coming to judge the world 1 in righteousness. For "2 we must all be made manifest before the judgement-seat of Christ. To Him has been given "the Name 3 which is above every name; that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things on earth and things under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father". Someday you must kneel before Him; why not now?

We bring you the good news of His love, which led Him to lay down His life for you, who as yet do not believe in Him, as truly as for those 4 who have already become His disciples. He now offers you freely the gift 5 of salvation, the assurance of God's forgiveness and grace to serve Him in newness of life, and finally a place in the many mansions 6 in God's immediate presence in the Heavenly Places, into which nothing that defiles 7 can enter.

Pray therefore, my brother, that God may guide you aright and lead you to a right decision in this great matter ere it is too late. Thus you will be on God's side in the great contest between truth and falsehood, right and wrong. So shall you find the Truth in Him who is the Way, 8 the Truth and the Life: and, having here walked daily with Him and received into your heart that peace which the world cannot give, being freed from the fear of death and hell, you will be able to look forward with gladness to a glorious Resurrection. And when He comes again to judge the world in righteousness, you shall receive from His pierced hand the crown of everlasting life.
