Not illustrated. 1830 edition. Excerpt: ...that application is the better. But the application which all sound divines (in this point) require as necessary in saving faith, is neither an assurance, nor persuasion that your own sins are already pardoned, or that they ever will be: but it is, 1. A belief that the promise of pardon to all believers, is so universal, as that it includeth you as well as others, and promiseth and otfereth you pardon, -and life, if you will believe in Christ. ' 2. And it is a consent or willingness of heart that Christ be y-ours, and you be his, to the ends proposed in the Gospel. 3. A-nd it is a practical trust in his sufliciency, as choosing him for the only Mediator, resolving to venture your souls, and all your hopes upon him: -though yet through your ignorance of yourselves, you may think that you do not this thing in sincerity, which indeed you do; yea, and much fear (through melancholy or temptation) that you never shall do it, and consequently never shall be saved. He that doubteth of his own salvation, not because he doubteth of the truth of the Gospel; but because he doubteth of the sincerity of his own heart, may be mistaken in himself, but is not therefore an unbeliever (as is said before). If you would know whether you believe the promises truly, answer me these particular questions: 1. Do you believe that Godhath promised that all true believers shall be saved? 2. Do you believe that if you are or shall be a true believer, you shall be saved? 3. Do you choose or desire God as your only happiness and end, to be enjoyed in heaven, and Christ as the only Mediator to procure it; and his Holy Spirit as his Agent in your souls, to sanctify you fully to the image of God? Are you truly willing that thus it should be? And if God be willing, will not.
