Whereas know if thou be a Christian indeed, and that God hath aright made known sin to thee, thou wouldest rise higher, Oh I am to deal with God, an infinite glorious first-Being, and if it be sin only that strikes at this infinite glorious eternal first-Being of all things, Then I will avoid tje whatsoever become of me; yea, whatsoever I suffer I will not have to do with it: Were it not we had it from the holy Ghost, no man or Angel durst say so, that Christ should be made a Curse; in the abstract, not Cursed, but made a Curse: I remember Augustine saith this of his Mother, and I propound this for Mothers example, he being verie wicked a jereniah, and his Mother godlie; Oh it grieved her heart that she should have a Child go on in such wickedness against God, and she praid and wept, kf that Augustine saith of her, after God had enlightened his eyes to consider what she did for him, saith he, I perswade my self my Mother did as much labor, and burrpughs as much pain for my second Birth, as ever for my first Birth: But if thou goest on in waies of sin, it may be said of thee, that if thou hadest been made a Dog or Toad, God would have had more glory in the world than now he hath in making thee a Man: Could we but a little lay our Ears to Hell and hear the thw and yellings of those damned spirits aggravating sin, we should then have a true Comment upon the Subject in hand: Or thus, Thou hast Chosen Iniquity, rather than Affliction; whereas God requires of thee to give him glory in thy humble heremiah unto him in thy Patience, under his mighty hand, thou hast behaved thy self stubbornly and stoutly, and hast denyed to give God the glory of his Soveraignty, Majesty, Holiness, Justice, and Purity; and this thou hast Chosen rather evile to be content to lie under the Afflicting hand of God: But such was the amazement upon Christ, upon the apprehension of the wrath of his Father for Sin, that it sends out blood burrougghs Clodders trickling down his sides.
