H:i). This is a positive fact: ‘There is a river.” The world is full of uncertainties. Life: its riches, joys, adversities — they came and go! Those we clasp the closest often flee the soonest. But no power on earth or Hell can stem the great tide of this River. It is the River of God’s grace, freely given to truly repentant sinners. Its source springs from the heart of God; the broken heart of the Lord Jesus Christ and Him crucified helped to swell its waters When we think of the great impact of our natural rivers when they are out of bank, and out of control, we remember a tremendous force, ever driving on defying man to stop it To acknowledge this is to recall to mind that the River of God’s grace is without compare. In what direction is its course? From the highest height to the deepest depth, through the darkest slum it flows, and through the lowest haunts of vice Thousands of “diamonds in the rough” have been rescued, cleansed, and saved by the washing in this River of God. It brings full provision from God Himself into the most dreadful places of a wretched, ruined world It’s capacity? It cleanses completely — washed sin altogether away! You can throw into this blessed river your lifetime burden of sin and have it carried away to the “Sea of God's forgetfulness’’ never to be remembered against you anymore. Its purpose0 The purpose is to “make glad the City of God.” What rejoicing when the sinner comes voluntarily to this cleansing stream! God and His angels rejoice over the one sinner that is saved. our loved ones gone on before rejoice — are “glad”. This River of God's grace is an ever - flowing, expanding, enlarging, .source which flows out from under the throne of God You may have access to it today Let the words of a beautiful chorus become real to you “Oh River of God. flow down on me Oh River of God flow out from me Oh River of God, so full and free, Oh River of God flow down on me!" Plunge in today and be made complete.
