Chapter Two Outline

  • Mortification of Sin
  • Provocation to Duty

Chapter Three Outline

  • Each paragraph in this chapter is essentially its own separate point on reading the Word.
  • Read the Word as…
    • a book made by God Himself.
    • a perfect rule of faith.
    • a soul-enriching treasury.
    • a book of evidences.
    • a spiritual magazine out of which you fetch all your weapons to fight against sin and Satan.
    • a spiritual glass to dress yourself by.
    • a book of spiritual recipes.
    • a sovereign elixir to comfort you in distress.
    • the last will and testament of Christ.
    • a book by which you must be judged.
