Hear Him


I can now only mention one thing more and that is, did the Father say, ‘This is my beloved Son, hear him’? then let every one of our hearts echo to this testimony given of Christ, ‘This is my beloved Saviour.’ Did God so love the world, as to send his only begotten Son, his well beloved Son to preach to us? Then, my dear friends, hear him. What God said seventeen hundred years ago, immediately by a voice from heaven, concerning his Son upon the mount, that same thing God says to you immediately by his word, ‘Hear him.’ If ye never heard him before, hear him now. Hear him so as to take him to be your prophet, priest and your king. Hear him, so as to take him to be your God and your all. Hear him today, ye youth, while it is called today. Hear him now, lest God should cut you off before you have another invitation to hear him. Hear him while he cries, ‘Come unto me;’ hear him while he opens his hand and his heart. Hear him while he knocks at the door of your souls, lest you should hear him saying, ‘Depart, depart, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.’ Hear him, ye old and grey-headed, hear him, ye that have one foot in the grave.

Hear him, I say. And if ye are dull of hearing, beg of God to open the ears of your hearts and your blind eyes; beg of God that you may have an enlarged and a believing heart and that ye may know what the Lord God saith concerning you. God will resent it, he will avenge himself on his adversaries, if you do not hear a blessed Saviour. He is God’s son, he is God’s beloved son. He came upon a great errand, even to shed his precious blood for sinners. He came to cleanse you from all sin and to save you with an everlasting salvation. Ye who have heard him, hear him again. Still go on, believe in and obey him and by-and-by you shall hear him saying, ‘Come, ye blessed of my Father, receive the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.’

—George Whitefield, “Christ’s Transfiguration” in Lee Gatiss (Ed.), The Sermons of George Whitefield (Crossway, 2012), 1:503–4.
