Gospel-purging

Ralph Erskine:  “Gospel-mortification is from Gospel principles, viz.,

(1)    The Spirit of God, “If ye through the Spirit mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom.8.13).

(2)   Faith in Christ, “Purifying their hearts by faith” (Acts15.9).

(3)   Love of Christ constraining, “The love of Christ constraineth us” (2Cor5.14). 

[1685-1752]
