mercy unmerited, pardon unfolicited, a full and free remiffion of all your fins. "I have blot

ted out thine iniquities as a cloud, and as a "thick cloud thy fins: return unto me, for "I have redeemed thee?" Receive this teftimony, and "fet to your feal that God is true."

Think not to do injury to the grace of God, by weaving a felf-righteous cobweb, and refusing to believe, till you have laid down fome rules of a new life, and effected fome partial reformation, as if you would first fave yourfelves, that you may be fit for falvation by Chrift. Thefe hopes will foon be dashed in pieces. Faith in the imputed righteousness of Chrift is the finner's only plea. The more vile you are in your own apprehenfion, the more need you have "to "put on Chrift." The fubfequent change of heart and practice must be the effect of his power, is a part of his purchase, and ought to be received as his gracious gift. And I will venture to foretel, that you will make the greater progrefs in true holiness, the lefs you are difposed to boast of, or to truft in it.

This, I apprehend, is the gofpel itself, ftiled in fcripture with the higheft propriety, the "gospel of ❝ the grace of God." Chrift came "not to call "the righteous, but finners to repentance." If you will rely on him for falvation, he will shed abroad


abroad the love of God in your hearts by the Holy Ghoft, which will be a powerful and operative principle of new obedience.. I befeech you therefore, in the most earnest manner, not to reject the counsel of God against yourselves.. Nothing can be more liberal, or more gracious, than the offer of the gofpel: "I will give, to "him that is athirst of the fountain of the wa

ter of life freely." There is no fin of fo deep a dye, or fo infectious a stain, but the blood of Chrift is fufficient to wash it out. There is not any flave of Satan fo loaded with chains, but he is able to fet him free. If you perifh, it is of yourfelves. I have given you. warning, from a fincere and ardent concern for your everlasting intereft; and may God himself, for Chrift's fake, by his Holy Spirit, effectually perfuade you to comply with it.
