This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt: enfeebling mistake, to be resting in an assurance that we "are saved, and safe." That, after all, is no more than a comfortable circumstance, which only too readily nourishes sellconfidence and pride. III. The Purpose Of Divine Redemption Is Righteousness.

The man wants God's blessing, is ready for it, and is open to receive it. But this is something new for selfsatisfied, self-serving man. It indicates another spirit. This man will be prepared to make the best of God's blessings...
