( 30 ) SERMON H. Sincere Obedience neceffary to our Acceptance with God. Mat. vii. 2I, 22, 23.

And then will I profefs unto them, I never knew you ; depart from me ye that work iniquity. O queflion can be of greater im- portance to men than this, upon what foundation they may hope for the favour of God ; and what is to be done on their part that they may be intitled to it? And none more important to chriflians, than what are the terms of falvation fix'd in the gofpel ; fine our Lord Jefus Chrift came into SERM. II.
