I have made the point that we should not enter into detailed explorations of Godâ€™s decrees in our preaching to sinners â€“ not, I hasten to add (and now repeat), that we should never mention such when addressing sinners. But as I have explained, this must be done in the right spirit. And what is that right spirit? To illustrate what I have in mind, I reproduce extracts from two preachers who, having set out the glories of the redemption which Christ accomplished, addressed sinners with the free offer. I have chosen George Whitefieldâ€™s sermon on â€˜The Lord our righteousnessâ€™ (Jer. 23:6), and Jonathan Edwardsâ€™ History of Redemption.
