The
third
Sermon
by
it
,
thou hadit better
haue it
then
want
it;
when
P4111
vnderflood
that
it
was
a
medici
le,
and
not
a
poyfon
as
hce
tooke it
to be,
hee
was
content
and
refblved
in
it;
And
a
man
refol-
veth
not except
he
be
a
gainer.
Hee law that
Gods
pow=er
was
manifefl in
his weakeneffe,
and
bee
faw
himfelfe
humbled
by
it;
and
when
he law
that
God
gained glory
;
and himfelfe humilia-
tion
by
it,he
was
content
to
be denyed
in
it;So
I
fay
whofoever
asketh
findeth,you
(hall
never
find any
example
but that
whofoever
fought
to
the
Lord
as
bee
ought,
hee was
certainly
heard,
or
die
he
had fomewhat
that
was
better
graunted to
him
inflead
of
it.
And this
is
the
firft
reafon
that
is
vied
heave.
The
fecond
rea-
fon
is
this
;
What man
among
you,
if
his Son aske
bread, willgitie him
a
flone;
or
if
he
aske
a
fifh,
will
gita
him
a
ferpent
;
if
yoga
then
that
are evil!,
know
how
to
gifle good things
to
your children,
how
much
more
(ball
your
heavenly
fathergiue
good things
to
them which
aske
him,
(faith
he)
you be
not
able
to
perfwade your
felues
of
this
truth
,
becaufe
you
know
not the father, for
he
dwells
in
light
in
acceffable
you
are
not acquainted
with
him
,
faith
ou+r
Saviour,
I
will heipe
you
out
with
an
argument
that
you better vnderftand
even
vpon
earth
( faith
hee)
take
but
a
father
heave,
a
father
that
is
ill
(but the
Lord
is
full
of
goodnes,
fathers
haue
but
a
drop but
a
fparke
of
mercy
in
them
,
whereas
the Lord
is
full
of
mercy,
as
the
Lord
is
full
of
light,
hee
is
the
God
