Man hath now a heart too suitable to his estate a low state, and a low spirit. As the poor man that would not believe that any one man had such a sum as a hun dred pounds, it was so far above what he possessed; so man will hardly now believe, that there is such a happi ness as once he had, much less as Christ hath now procured.
The apostle bestows most of this epistle in proving to the Jews that the end of all ceremonies and shadows is to direct them to Jesus Christ, the substance and that the rest of Sabbaths, and Canaan, should teach them to look for a future rest. My text is his conclusion after divers arguments to that end; a conclusion so useful to a believer, as containing the ground of all his comforts, the end of all his duty and sufferings, that you may easily be satisfied why I have made it the subject of my present discourse. What more welcome to men under af?ictions than rest I What more welcome news to men under pub lic calamities Hearers, I pray God your entertainment of it be but half answerable to the excellence of the sub ject; and then you will have cause to bless God, while you live, that ever you heard it, as I have that ever I studied it.
