An evangelist once went to speak to a country cartwright about salvation. The evangelist had come at the invitation of the cartwright’s wife in hopes that he might be successful in leading this man to the Lord. They went to the cartwright’s shop. The evangelist pretended to be helpful by picking up a plane as he went to work on a finished wheel. The cartwright stopped him and told him that the wheel was already finished. The evangelist then said “Then I suppose I would spoil a finished job by trying to do something to it”. Then laying his hand on the cartwright’s shoulder, he quietly remarked, “You have more concern about your work than you have about Christ’s. By seeking to add something you would only spoil it”. The man saw his mistake and rested satisfied in what Christ had “finished,” and was at peace. “There was nothing to do for salvation”. (John Ritchie. 500 Gospel Sermon Illustrations. Grand Rapids: Kregel Publications, 1987, p. 16).
