Self Delusion

Christ is made light of, either because men think he is theirs already, or because he may easily be theirs at any time.  It is true, that grace is free, and the offer is universal, wherever the Gospel is preached.  And it is true, that men may have Christ whenever they are willing to comply with his terms.  But if you are not willing now, how can you think you shall be willing hereafter?  If you can make your own heart willing, why not do it immediately?  Can you do it better, when sin hath more hardened it, and God may have given you over to yourself?
