by Jeremiah Burroughs
These sermons follow Burroughs' impactful discourses on the gravity of sin, providing a timely contrast by emphasizing the revitalizing facets of the Gospel.
Within the pages of this treatise, readers encounter a comprehensive exploration of Gospel grace, an elucidation of God's justice, an exaltation of His mercy, and an encouraging call for repentant sinners to approach Christ's blood for forgiveness. This work challenges presumptuous notions of heaven held by sinners on the precipice of destruction, offering a panoramic view of God's love, the grace of the Son, and the redemption made available through Christ's sacrifice. It provides life-giving waters for those sinking and fainting under the weight of sin.
The book explores the nature of sin, emphasizing its damnable nature and God's necessary abhorrence of it. It meticulously addresses how God's justice cannot be separated from His mercy, presenting the solution: sin being transferred from the believer to the Surety, Jesus Christ. This powerful truth is illuminated through the narrative of sin being condemned and punished in Christ, while the repentant sinner stands justified and pardoned. The book resonates with those who seek peace with God through Jesus Christ, offering a clear understanding of Gospel truths and encouraging readers to embrace this transformative message.
As you open the pages of this book, may the Lord grant you illumination and insight into the author's intentions, along with the earnest prayer of those who desire your spiritual growth and salvation through an ever-deepening knowledge of God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
