One spoke of a physicist that being prostrate on the ground of a hill slope was holding a magnifying glass and through it carefully observed and studied one of the numerous small flowers that gave their color to the whole area around. A shepherd some distance away that saw him, out of curiosity and interest, walked up to him and asked: "Sir, what are you doing there lying flat on the ground?" The scientist, asked him to bow and look and as he looked through the lens he burst into tears. The physicist was sort of  impressed and wondering asked: "What is the matter, why are you crying?" Upon which the shepherd answered, "I cry because I'm thinking of the thousands of such beautiful creatures of God that I've crushed with these brogans!" And the tract continued: "Reader, how many golden opportunities God has given you to repent and trust Christ as your Savior and you have, by mere negligence maybe, let them go unexploited? Don,t you think it is high time you started pondering seriously on your soul's salvation?" Then the writer had another illustration. An eagle had landed on a corpse on the river Niagara and burying its talons deeply into it enjoyed a special meal. The river though was running, and running fast, toward the famous and awful Niagara Falls. The eagle trusted its wings thinking that even the last moment, just a little before reaching the critical point, it could move them and find itself up in the sky safe and secure. But, things don't always come as we figure, and the moment it tried to fly with great horor discovered that its talons were so strongly entangled with its prey that before it realized it both tumbled down into the deep becoming one and the same thing, the eagle and the corpse, providing, perhaps, farther down in the course of the water, another nice meal for some other birds of prey.
    The writer of the tract continued in the same spirit, "Reader, are you making the same mistake? Do you enjoy something God hates while time, as the river Nigara, runs and brings you toward the great deep? Do you trust on your ability to get rid of your sins any time you decide? Do you think you will have a chance the last moment? Oh, no, the eagle of our illustration should warn you and you should think wisely and soberly this very moment deciding to fall prostrate at the feet of Jesus and accept Him as your Savior right now. Don't put it off, you may have no other opportunity and tomorrow it may be too late! That was it! I fell on my knees right away and poured my soul out to God. I confessed my sinfulness and asked Him to forgive me in Christ's name. I knew full well in order for one to be saved no prayer is necessary, and something like that we find nowhere in the New Testament. All that is required of the sinner in order for his salvation is trusting Christ and His finished work. But, myself had the knowledge, all I needed was to be assured my sins were forgiven and I was saved from eternal damnation. I can't remember nor say how long I prayed or what I said. What I do very vividly remember though, is that my heart filled with the joy of heaven and a burden was lifted from my soul. God's Spirit sealed me for the day of redemption and gave me the assurance of salvation and eternal life. Getting up from my knees I would sing:  "Yes, Christ did save me, He made me happy, blessed be the moment, glory to my Redeemer", words of a well-known and often-sung hymn.  That night, for all this happened in the evening, I didn't sleep at all. I was so happy that I kept praying and praising God.

The power of the gospel is seen in transformed lives. Man is born a slave to sin. Religion, philosophy, ethics, good works, and whatever else one might think of, cannot deliver him. Only faith in the gospel of Christ "which is the power of God unto salvation" can.
