Wicked men have their good moods, and devout pangs in the way to Heaven, but they are not lasting. They will go with God a step or two; but it is said, “He that walketh in the law of the Lord.”
…A man is judged by the tenor of his life, not by one action, but as he holdeth on his was to Heaven (JOB 27:10). Many run well for a while, but are soon out of breath.
“Enoch walked with God three hundred and sixty-five years.”
