of Christ : and it is my desire to lead you through the dark ages of the Church and the World, to that Reformation in the sixteenth century, the benefit of which has extended to our own days. For the present, my dear young readers, I shall bid you farewell, only reminding you in faithful love, that, though you were born in Christendom, and are numbered among the Christian inhabitants of this land, you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven except you are born again. The mere water of baptism can no more convey the quickening power of the Holy Spirit, than the mere wine at the Lord's supper can commu. nicate the atoning power of the blood of Christ. Do not err, my beloved children, every good gift, and every perfect gift, is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Many are now teaching that God gives his Spirit to infants at their baptism, and calls them to be his children, yet at last they may die in their sins : but thus it is written, “ the gifts and calling of God are without repentance ;' therefore, that sinful course of life, which is falsely said to lead to the withdrawal of those good gifts, simply proves they have never been received. At the last day it will be worse than useless to have borne the thrice blessed name of God, if you are found strangers to the Father's love, the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost.
