Timeless Christian message! One of being circumspect and watchful in your life as a Christian. Examine yourself, judge YOURSELF, so you won’t be judged by God! Hebrews 2:1-3 comes to my mind, when thinking about the book:  Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;

Ester Reid was a typical lukewarm Christian, who believed she was quite pious and long-suffering, when in fact she was the opposite. She helps to run her family’s boardinghouse, and works long hours, cooking, cleaning, and caring for sick residents.

ROMANS 10:8-13 –  But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
