And Jesus

Luke xvi. 34, 15. And the Pharisees also who were covetous,

heard all these things : And they derided him.
faid unto them, Ye are they which justifie yourselves
before men, but God knoweth your hearts: For that which
is highly esteemed amongst men, is abomination iv'the fight
of God.

WHAT

BELOVED,
7 HAT the meaning of that Providence

was, that called me to the occupation

of my talent among you this summer, will be best read and understood by the effects of it upon your own souls: The kindly increase of grace and holyness in heart and life, can only prove it to have been in mercy : Where there is not the fruit of the word, there it becomes a judgment. The word travels with life or death, falvation or damnation, and bringeth forth one or other in every soul that hears it. I would not for a world (were it in my power to make the choice) that my labours, which were meant and designed for the promotion of your immortal souls, to the glory of the other world, in a present pursuance of the things of your peace, mould be found to have been a ministration of death and come demnation, in the great day of Jesus Christ.
