Excerpt from Thirty-Four Sermons on the Most Interesting Doctrines of the Gospel: Discovering Clearly and Evidently to Every Capacity, the Difference Betwixt Faith and Works, Law and Gospel, the Christian and Creature Operations, Troubles and Consolations 32 of of God, who is the King of righteoufnefs and peace, and my molt fweet Saviour and Mediator: he (hall keep my confcience joyfuland quiet in the found and pure doetrine of the Gofpel, and in the knowledge of this Chriflian and heavenly righteoufnefs, in that righteoufnefs and Mel have no fin, no care, no fling'of confcience, no fear of death. 0 lawythy tyranny can have no place in the throne where Chrifl my Lord fitteth there I tam not hear thee, fur 1 am free, and a (on, wbn mufl not be {abject to any bondage or law. Therefore \vhen Chrifi is come, we ought to know nothing of the law, unlefs it be in this refpect, that it hath power and dominion over the flelh, to bridle and keep it under. But when the law cometh to trouble thy confcience, thou mufl fay, Lady law, thou comeft not in feafon, for thou comefl too loon, tarry yet until 430 years be expired, and when they are pafi, then come and [para not. But if thou com efi then, yet {halt thou come too late. For then hath the promife prevented 66 430 years: to which! Afl'mt and {weetly tepore myfe in the fame. Therefore I have nothing to do with thee; I hear thee not, for I live in Chrifi who. Hath abolifhed thee, 0 law! 0 law thou accufeft me and fayeft, that I have-committed manyfi'ins Indeedi grant that I have committed many fins, yea, and do [till commit fins daily without number. This touch eth me nothing: I am now deaf and cannot hear there for: thou talkefl to me in vain, for I am dead unto thee. Bur if thou wilt n'eeds difpute with me fins, get thee to my Beth and members, but trouble not me, nor my confcience, Nay, which am a Lady and a (been, and have nothing to do with thee, fori am dead to theefand now I live to Chrifl, with' whom I'am under another law, viz. The law of grace. Which ruleth over fin and the law. Therefore thelaw cannot accufc or condemn thofe that believe on 'chrift, Gal. V. 23. Indeed the law troubleth and ter'rifieth our confciences, but Chrifl apprehended by faith; vanquifheth it with all his terrors and threatnings. To them there fore the law is utterly abolifhed, and hath no more pow. Er to acccufe them for they do that of their own accord.
