One essential thing for a sinner’s salvation

Coming to Christ is just the one essential thing for a sinner’s salvation. He that cometh not to Christ is yet in “the gall of bitterness and in the bonds of iniquity.” Coming to Christ is the very first effect of regeneration. No sooner is the soul quickened than it at once discovers its lost estate, looks out for a refuge, and believing Christ to be the only one, flies to him and reposes in him. Where there is not this coming to Christ, it is certain that there is as yet no quickening; where there is no quickening, the soul is dead in trespass and sins, and being dead it cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven.
