shed_v tear_n of_o a_o true_a repentance_n and_o what_o may_v then_o be_v expect_v from_o a_o sinner_n who_o in_o the_o sacrament_n of_o the_o eucharist_n have_v all_o the_o idea_n of_o his_o agony_n suffering_n and_o death_n most_o lively_o delineate_v to_o he_o what_o a_o irreconcilable_a aversion_n ought_v not_o he_o to_o conceive_v for_o his_o sin_n what_o resolution_n ought_v not_o he_o to_o take_v of_o leave_v and_o forsake_v they_o for_o ever_o and_o to_o this_o we_o find_v ourselves_o still_o more_o indispensable_o oblige_v by_o the_o nature_n of_o this_o sacrament_n for_o in_o the_o five_o place_n it_o be_v as_o i_o have_v say_v before_o the_o memorial_n of_o christ_n blood_n by_o virtue_n whereof_o god_n have_v make_v a_o new_a covenant_n with_o sinner_n in_o which_o he_o have_v assure_v we_o that_o he_o will_v forgive_v we_o our_o sin_n and_o bestow_v the_o glory_n of_o his_o kingdom_n upon_o we_o but_o the_o condition_n without_o which_o we_o can_v be_v make_v partaker_n either_o of_o the_o remission_n of_o sin_n or_o of_o the_o glory_n of_o heaven_n be_v the_o repent_v of_o our_o iniquity_n and_o apply_v ourselves_o to_o the_o study_n of_o sanctification_n to_o our_o life_n end._n the_o benesit_fw-la of_o this_o new_a covenant_n be_v that_o god_n remember_v our_o transgression_n no_o more_o but_o the_o condition_n he_o require_v of_o we_o be_v that_o whereas_o the_o jew_n lay_v up_o his_o law_n in_o the_o ark_n without_o have_v they_o in_o their_o heart_n we_o must_v always_o have_v they_o write_v in_o we_o in_o order_n to_o a_o continual_a religious_a observance_n of_o they_o now_o as_o it_o be_v his_o will_n that_o we_o shall_v daily_o beg_v of_o he_o the_o pardon_n of_o our_o sin_n which_o plain_o show_v he_o be_v ready_a to_o grant_v it_o we_o so_o the_o only_a command_n he_o lay_v upon_o we_o be_v that_o for_o the_o time_n to_o come_v we_o sin_v no_o more_o lest_o a_o worse_a thing_n befall_v we_o and_o indeed_o be_v it_o not_o exceed_o unaccountable_a that_o man_n who_o will_v pass_v for_o child_n of_o god_n shall_v live_v the_o life_n of_o devil_n that_o they_o who_o look_v upon_o themselves_o as_o confederate_n with_o christ_n shall_v continual_o violate_v the_o condition_n of_o this_o covenant_n god_n reminded_a the_o jew_n of_o their_o obligation_n to_o holiness_n upon_o the_o account_n of_o his_o be_v their_o god._n moses_n imply_v thus_o much_o in_o the_o 24._o chap._n of_o exodus_fw-la where_o the_o people_n have_v accept_v of_o the_o law_n which_o he_o have_v propound_v to_o they_o from_o god_n after_o he_o have_v write_v they_o in_o a_o book_n and_o read_v the_o same_o in_o the_o audience_n of_o the_o congregation_n they_o answer_v all_o that_o the_o lord_n have_v say_v will_v we_o do_v and_o be_v obedient_a whereupon_o moses_n sprinkle_v the_o blood_n on_o the_o people_n and_o say_v behold_v the_o blood_n of_o the_o covenant_n which_o the_o lord_n have_v make_v with_o you_o concern_v all_o these_o word_n and_o shall_v christian_n believe_v that_o god_n will_v own_v they_o for_o his_o people_n while_o they_o remain_v in_o their_o bondage_n to_o sin_n the_o mean_v of_o the_o covenant_n we_o have_v make_v with_o god_n have_v be_v clear_o express_v by_o a_o pagan_a viz._n pliny_n who_o in_o his_o epistle_n to_o the_o emperor_n trajan_n lib._n 10._o ep._n 97._o thus_o explain_v the_o notion_n christian_n have_v of_o this_o glorious_a covenant_n they_o be_v enter_v into_o with_o god_n they_o bound_v themselves_o say_v he_o by_o a_o sacrament_n or_o oath_n not_o to_o commit_v any_o such_o crime_n as_o be_v false_o report_v of_o they_o but_o to_o abstain_v from_o robbery_n theft_n and_o adultery_n to_o be_v as_o good_a as_o their_o word_n and_o faithful_a to_o their_o trust_n etc._n etc._n he_o plain_o show_v that_o believer_n look_v upon_o themselves_o as_o confederate_n and_o party_n in_o the_o same_o covenant_n with_o god_n banish_v all_o manner_n of_o division_n from_o the_o midst_n of_o they_o and_o further_o intimate_v that_o as_o they_o do_v all_o eat_v of_o the_o same_o bread_n so_o they_o be_v of_o one_o heart_n and_o mind_n and_o unite_v to_o god_n by_o
