HOW TO BE SAVED.


WHAT is that little girl
crying about? My dear,
she is very much distress-
ed. But, mother, what dis-
tresses her ? Francis, she
is sorry because she has
found out something about

herself. Mother, it must
be something very bad, in-
deed, or she wouW not
weep so. Francis, it is
something very bad. Mo-
ther, pray tell me what she
has found out. My dear,
she has found out that she
is a sinner. She has been
reading in the Bible, and
she has learned that God is
angry with the sinner every
day. She knows that God
is angry with her. That is
what makes her sorry.
Mother, am I a sinner ?
Yes, my dear Francis, you
are a sinner too. Have you

not often done wrong?
Yes, mother. Have you
always obeyed your pa-
rents ? No, mother; some-
times I have been very dis-
obedient. Francis, have
you never done any thing
wicked ? Mother, I have
been a bad child, I know.
Francis, have you never

said what was wrong ? Yes,
mother. Then you see you
are asinner. You have never
loved God with all your
heart. You love to please
yourself more than to please
God.
Then little Francis look-
ed very sad. He wentinto
a room by himself, and
thought how bad he had
been.
Come here, Francis.
What have you been think-
ing about, in the other
room? Mother, I have
been thinking about my/
heart. I know that my/

neart is bad. It will not
love Christ. Francis, is it
not very wicked for you
not to love Christ ? 0 yes,
mother; I wonder that the
Lord has let me live so
long, when I have been so
thoughtless and hard-heart-
ed. I am afraid I shall
never go to heaven. I feel
very unhappy. O mother,
will you pray for me?
Then his mother knelt
down, and prayed for Fran-
cis. She prayed that the
Lord would give him a
new heart, and forgive all
Shis sins.












Then she said to Francis,
My dear son, I am glad that
you think of these things.
Do you wish to know how
to be saved ? 0 yes, dear
mother, I do indeed. Lis-
ten then: Believe in the
Lord Jesus Christ, and
you shall be saved. Christ
has died on the cross to

save sinners. He is able
to save the chief of sinners.
He is willing to save you.
He is willing to save you
now. Believe this. Trust
in Christ. The blood of
Christ cleanses from all sin.
God loves Christ, and hears
him. God will love you
for Christ's sake. Believe
this. The moment you
truly believe, your soul is
safe.
