The Epistle Dedicatory.

To the little Flock of Christ, over whom the

Holy Ghost bath made me Overseer, The Father of Merces, and God of all Grace, who

hath called you to his Eternal Glory by Christ JeJus, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you, and make known to you that Mystery, which from the beginning of the World hath been hid in "God, who created all by Jesus Christ.

I

Beloved in the Lord,
Have in some Measure been acquainted with
the longing Desire of most of you to have

these Sermons published, by whose Importunity I have been prevailed with to Print them, against many Struglings, and much Unwillingness in myself to go forwards with the Work ; for some of you well know how much I was set against the Printing of them, and that for feveral Reasons.

First, Knowing that there are plenty of good Books, the Works of worthy learned Men, extant: That there was no need of my unworthy Labours. Secondly, Knowing how little the best of Books are valued by most. Thirdly, Knowing the Scorn and Contempt not only of prophane and wicked Persons, but many that profefs a great Zeal for God, who contemn those principal GospelTruths, Justification by Chrift alone : But if Perfons were truly wakened, they would be of the

Mind
