to god in Worthip. 103 I appeal to any gracious heart, What calla thou want of any of thete, or what wouldeft thou want ? Doeft thou fay, Her's a great deal ? Can there be too much to make thee happy.? Thefe things are not only thy Duty, but thy happinefs, Glory and excellency confifts in them : If any one fhould bring you a great many Jewels and Pearls, would you fay, Here's a great deal ado ? Ohno, the more the merrier. So fay I, this one Me- ditation would cake off the thoughtsof a deal, for in all thefe my happinefs coofifts, and the more I have of thefe, the more (hall I. enjoy of God, the morehappy 113,311 I be bothhere and for ever. Now I had thought to have given you fome Reafons why the Name of Godmutt be fanclified : only I befeech youby all that hath been maid go away with this thought, What little caufe is there that any of us fhould reft upon any of out Duties ; If this be required of us thus to fandifie the Name of God in Duty, (I fay) we have little caufe any ofus to reft on any duties that we perform. There are many poor creatures chat have noother Saviors to reft upon but their Prayers, and coming to Church, and taking the communion ; Now if in all tilde the Lord expetts that thou fhouldft thus fanttifie his Name : Thou haft little caufe to reft upon any thing that thou haft done, thou haft caufe rather to go alone and mourn for taking the Name ofGod in vain in the duties of his Worfhip : Rel not in any of your performances;. labor to perform Duties as wel as you can, but when youhave done, know that you are unprofi- table fervants after al, and renounce all as in the point ofjufti- fication, and reft upon fomethingelfe, otherwife you are undone for ever.
