not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

John iii, 86, 86. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made Him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of His Son.

These things have I written unto you that believe on the Name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the Name of the Son of God.

for a lively faith in God's mercy through Christ.

ALMIGHTY and Everlasting God, Who didst so love the world as to give Thine Only-begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life; grant me, I beseech Thee, so perfectly and without all doubt to believe in Thy Son Jesus Christ, that my faith may be unreprovable in Thy sight; and that I, being made free from sin, and becoming the servant of God,

may have my fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

I pray Thee particularly to increase and strengthen my faith with respect to the merit and efficacy of Thy Son's cross and passion : that I may come to the Lord's table with a firm and lively persuasion, that the death which He suffered for us upon the cross was a full, perfect, and sufficient sacrifice, oblation, and satisfaction for the sins of the whole world; and that if I am not wanting in my endeavours to fit myself for so divine a favour, all the blessed promises which Thou hast made to mankind for His sake, will assuredly be made good to me in particular by means of that holy sacrament whereof I am now preparing to communicate. Grant this, O merciful Father, for the merits, and through the mediation of the Same, Thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

He was reviled, reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not, but committed Himself to Him that judgeth righteously: Who his Own Self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sin, should live unto righteousness: by Whose stripes ye were healed. 1 Pet. ii. 21–24.
