The Sum of those Things which are to be perform’d by Men.Furthermore, the Sum of those Things which Christ and his Apostles deliver’d, and with which they begun their preaching, lyes herein; Repent ye, and believe the Gospel, Mat. 3:2, 10. 4:17, 23. Mark 1:14, 15. Luke 3:3, 4, 16. 4:18, 24, 46, 47. Add Acts 2:22, 32, 36, 37, &c. 3:13, &c. 19, 26. 13:17, 39. 16:30, &c. And because that preaching was directed to adult Persons, whose Minds were dark with Ignorance of Divine Things, or possess’d with corrupt Opinions concerning them, and their Lives were corrupted with Wickedness, therefore it was begun with the urging of Repentance. Which strictly taken, consists in the Abdication of former Errors, Acts 19:19. and a Grief for former Sins, and a Purpose of forsaking them for the future. For by this the Way was to be prepar’d for the saving Reception of the Doctrine of the Gospel, and for Faith; and the Chamber must needs be first swept and cleansed into which so noble a guest was to enter. For the Profession of the Covenant in Christ requires another sort of Life and Manners than those of Heavens, and of them who follow the Inclination of the Flesh, or of the Corruption which proceeds from the Original Sin. 1 Cor. 6:9, 10, 11. We must purge out the old Leaven, that we may become a new Lump. 1 Cor. 5:7. They who sit in Darkness, and the Shadow of Death, must not shut their Eyes against the rising Light. Add Eph. 2:1, 12. 4:17, 18, &c. Col. 1:13, 2:13, 3:7, 8.
