Myfierie.

fhould

honour

God

for

the greatefl

Gift that

ever

was, for the Incarnation

of

his

Sonne;

to

be

more prophanely difpofed then

and

to

give

our

(elves

to

more

Toole

courfes then at

other

times

;

how can

it but

provoke

the

Juftice

of

God efpecially it

being common?

Among(}

other

things,

we

may

juftly

looke

for

the

Ven-

geance

of

God

for

this

,

not

onely

upon

this

or

that

place

,

for

it

is

the fault

of

chriitendome.

Shall wecarryour

felvesthusprophanely

at

thefe

timcs,

when

we

fhould

walke

in a

holy

difpofiti-

on

?

Is

this the

way

to

be thankef'ull

to

God

?

Let

us

labour

to

entertains

and

embrace thefe

Myfteries

of

the Gofpel

as wee

fhould, witha

fu

table carriage to them

:for

the

Gofpel will no

j

longer tarry,then it hath

Curable

love

and

affeai

ons

to

the

greatnefl'e of

the

thing.

The Gofpel

may

leave

us

we

know

not

how foone,and

goe

to

people

that

are as

barbarous

as we

were, before

the

Gofpel

came

to

us.

The

Romans

thought,

they

had

Viaory

tyed

to

them

;

but

we

have

not

thefe Myfteries

of

the

Gofpel tyed to

us.

If

we

labour

not for

ananfverable carriage;

as

God bath

removed the

Gape!

from

the Eafterne

Churches

of

Afia,

that

are

under the tyrannie

of

the

Turks now, fo he

may,

and

we

know

not how

Toone,

take away thefe bleffed and

glorious

My-

lleries.

Let

us

reverence

thefe Myfteries

, and

blefhe

God

for

them,

and

labour to

expreffe

our

thankfulneffe

in our lives and

convcrfations,that

God

may

delight

to

continue with

us,

and con-

tinue

his blefï'rd

Truth

among us. Doe
