A quote from the past that still applies to today:"Opportunity once passed is lost forever. There is a time when the tide is sweeping by our door. We may then plunge in and be carried to glorious blessing, success and victory. To stand shivering on the bank, timid or paralyzed with stupor, at such a time, is to miss all, and most miserably fail, both for time and for eternity. Oh, our responsibility! The mighty tide of God's grace and favor is even now sweeping by us, in its prayer directed course. There is a river (of salvation) the streams whereof make glad the city of God (Psalm 46:4). It is time to "get together" and plunge in, individually and collectively. We are baptized "in one Spirit, into one body" (I Cor. 12:13). Let us lay aside all carnal contentions and divisions, that separate us from each other and from God. If we are His body, we are "one body." The opportunity of a lifetime, of centuries, is at our door, to be eternally gained or lost. There is no time to hesitate. Act quickly, lest another take thy crown. Oh, Church of Christ, awake! Be baptized with power. Then fly to rescue others. And to meet your Lord."
