10 ways in which God in Christ is a God of love #9


Here’s the 9th abridged extract from Ebenezer Erskine’s 10 point sermon on 10 ways in which God in Christ is a God of love:

Ebenezer Erskine

9. God in Christ is an inciting God, an entreating God, to sinners: and does not this say, that he is a God of love? He invites us to come to him for all needful grace : Is. Iv. 1. “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and lie that hath no money ; come ye, buy and eat ; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.” He is an entreating God in Christ : 2 Cor. v. 20. ” We are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.”
