If a man is near-sighted, he only needs corrective glasses; but if he is BLIND, he needs a miracle only God can give– SIGHT! If a man is sick, he only needs medicinal aid; but if he is DEAD, he needs a miracle only God can give– LIFE! If a man has a weak heart, perhaps changing his diet and habits will improve his condition; but if he has a STONY HEART, a deceitful, desperately wicked heart, he needs this miracle-"a NEW HEART also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep my judgments, and do them" (Ezek. 36:26-27).

Knowing these things to be true and knowing the desperate, depraved condition in which Adam's fall has plunged all mankind, I believe, preach, and insist upon one solemn certain fact– "SALVATION IS OF THE LORD." Let every son of Adam who reads these words come (like the leper in Matt. 8) to Christ and worship Him, saying, "LORD, IF THOU WILT, THOU CANST MAKE ME WHOLE!"–AND HE WILL!!
