(Additional Physical Form). Print (Form). Electronic Resource (Form). Remote (Form). My unconverted friends, I cannot wonder that many of you, especially the young, are pleased with the world's exciting pleasures; but most sincerely do I desire for you more enduring and more exalted enjoyment. Abandon those things which an inspired roan of extensive experience pronounced “vanity of vanities,” and the utter emptiness of which a very little reflection will enable you to see. “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,” and in his service and the glorious hopes imparted by his grace, we promise you real, elevated, enduring happiness. The religion of Christ is not a gloomy religion. Far from discouraging cheerfulness, it lays a foundation not for cheerfulness only, but for the most exalted and imperishable happiness—a happiness which will not forsake you when, in the decline of life, you can no longer participate in the vain pleasures with which the world tempts you. “Godliness is profitable unto all things; having the promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.” He who lives as a rational, immortal being—who lives for eternity—will have little to regret in the retrospect of life; and, washed in the atoning blood of Christ, he will have nothing to fear in the eternal furture.
