Think again of the bottomless pit, the impenetrable darkness, the lightless fire, burning, but not glowing; the poisonous mass of worms, preying upon the flesh, ever feeding, and never filled, causing by their gnawing unbearable agony; and lastly, the greatest punishment of all, shame and confusion forever. Have a dread of these things, and let that dread correct thee, and be as a curb to thy mind to hold it in from the hankering after sin.
This fear of the Lord the Prophet hath promised to teach. But he hath not promised to teach it to all, but only to such as will hear him; not to such as have fallen far away, but to such as run to him, hungry for salvation; not to such as have no part in the promises, but to such as by baptism are born children of adoption, set at peace and oneness with the Word. Come, ye children, saith he; that is to say, Draw nigh unto me by good works, all ye who by the new birth have become the worthy children of light. Hearken unto me, all ye who have the ears of your heart opened. I will teach you the fear of the Lord, even the fear of that Being of Whom we have just been speaking.
