to_o this_o purpose_n write_v s._n john_n chriso_n in_o this_o wise_a you_o shall_v find_v many_o which_o have_v not_o the_o true_a faith_n ▪_o and_o be_v not_o of_o y_z e_z flock_n of_o christ_n and_o yet_o as_o it_o appear_v they_o flourish_v in_o good_a work_n of_o mercy_n you_o shall_v find_v they_o full_a of_o pity_n compassion_n and_o give_v to_o justice_n and_o yet_o for_o all_o that_o they_o have_v no_o fruit_n of_o their_o work_n because_o the_o chief_a work_n lack_v for_o when_o the_o jew_n ask_v of_o christ_n vi_fw-la what_o they_o shall_v do_v to_o work_v good_a work_n he_o

he_o shall_v flourish_v in_o good_a work_n for_o faith_n of_o itself_o be_v full_a of_o good_a work_n and_o nothing_o be_v good_a without_o faith_n and_o for_o a_o similitude_n he_o say_v that_o they_o which_o glister_n and_o shine_v in_o good_a work_n without_o faith_n in_o god_n be_v like_o dead_a man_n which_o have_v goodly_a &_o precious_a tomb_n and_o yet_o it_o avail_v they_o nothing_o faith_n may_v not_o be_v naked_a without_o good_a work_n for_o than_o it_o be_v no_o true_a faith_n and_o when_o it_o be_v adjoin_v to_o work_n yet_o be_v it_o above_o the_o work_n for_o as_o man_n that_o be_v very_a man_n in_o deed_n first_o have_v life_n and_o after_o be_v nourish_v so_o must_v our_o faith_n in_o christ_n go_v before_o &_o after_o be_v nourish_v with_o good_a work_v and_o life_n may_v be_v without_o norishment_n but_o norishment_n can_v be_v without_o life_n a_o man_n must_v needs_o be_v nourish_v by_o good_a work_n but_o first_o he_o must_v have_v faith_n he_o that_o do_v good_a deed_n yet_o without_o faith_n he_o have_v no_o life_n i_o can_v show_v a_o man_n that_o by_o faith_n without_o work_n live_v &_o come_v to_o heaven_n but_o without_o faith_n never_o man_n have_v life_n the_o thief_n that_o be_v hang_v when_o christ_n suffer_v do_v believe_v only_o and_o the_o most_o merciful_a god_n do_v justify_v he_o and_o because_o no_o man_n shall_v object_n that_o he_o lack_v time_n to_o do_v good_a work_v for_o else_o he_o will_v have_v do_z they_o truth_n it_o be_v and_o i_o will_v not_o contend_v therein_o but_o this_o i_o will_v sure_o affirm_v that_o faith_n only_o save_v he_o if_o he_o have_v live_v and_o not_o regard_v faith_n and_o the_o work_v thereof_o he_o shall_v have_v lose_v his_o salvation_n again_o but_o this_o the_o effect_n that_o i_o say_v that_o faith_n by_o itself_o save_v he_o but_o work_v by_o they_o self_n never_o justify_v any_o man_n here_o you_o have_v hear_v the_o mind_n of_o saint_n chrisostome_n whereby_o you_o may_v perceive_v that_o neither_o faith_n be_v without_o work_n have_v opportunity_n thereto_o nor_o work_n can_v avail_v to_o eternal_a life_n without_o faith_n ▪_o now_o to_o proceed_v to_o the_o three_o part_n which_o in_o the_o former_a sermon_n be_v note_v of_o faith_n that_o be_v to_o say_v what_o manner_n of_o work_n they_o be_v which_o spring_n out_o of_o true_a faith_n and_o lead_v faithful_a man_n unto_o eternal_a life_n this_o can_v be_v know_v so_o well_o as_o by_o our_o saviour_n christ_n himself_o nineteeen_o who_o be_v ask_v of_o a_o certain_a great_a man_n thesame_a question_n what_o work_v shall_v i_o do_v say_v a_o prince_n to_o come_v to_o everlasting_a life_n to_o who_o jesus_n answer_v nineteeen_o if_o thou_o will_v come_v to_o the_o eternal_a life_n keep_v the_o commandment_n but_o the_o prince_n not_o satisfy_v herewith_o ask_v far_o which_o commandment_n the_o scribe_n and_o phariseis_n have_v make_v so_o many_o of_o their_o own_fw-mi law_n and_o tradition_n to_o bring_v man_n to_o heaven_n beside_o god_n commandment_n that_o this_o man_n be_v in_o doubt_n whether_o he_o shall_v come_v to_o heaven_n by_o those_o law_n &_o tradition_n or_o by_o the_o law_n of_o god_n &_o therefore_o he_o ask_v christ_n which_o
be_v the_o less_o to_o be_v pass_v upon_o so_o that_o the_o rest_n may_v profit_v which_o will_v be_v more_o desirous_a to_o know_v the_o truth_n than_o when_o it_o be_v plain_n enough_o to_o contend_v about_o it_o and_o with_o contencious_a and_o capcious_a cavillation_n to_o obscure_v and_o darken_v it_o truth_n it_o be_v that_o out_o own_fw-mi work_v do_v not_o justify_v we_o to_o speak_v proper_o of_o our_o justification_n that_o be_v to_o say_v our_o work_n do_v not_o merit_v or_o deserve_v remission_n of_o our_o sin_n and_o make_v we_o of_o unjust_a just_a before_o god_n but_o god_n of_o his_o mere_a mercy_n through_o the_o only_a merit_n and_o deseruynge_n of_o his_o son_n jesus_n christ_n do_v justify_v us._n nevertheless_o because_o faith_n do_v directe_o send_v we_o to_o christ_n for_o remission_n of_o our_o sin_n &_o that_o by_o faith_n give_v we_o of_o god_n we_o embrace_v the_o promise_n of_o god_n mercy_n and_o of_o the_o remission_n of_o our_o sin_n which_o thing_n none_o other_o of_o our_o virtue_n or_o work_v proper_o do_v therefore_o scripture_n use_v to_o say_v that_o faith_n without_o work_n do_v justify_v and_o for_o much_o that_o it_o be_v all_o one_o sentence_n in_o effect_n to_o say_v faith_n without_o work_v &_o only_a faith_n do_v justify_v we_o therefore_o the_o old_a ancient_a father_n of_o the_o church_n from_o time_n to_o time_n have_v utter_v our_o justification_n with_o this_o speech_n only_a faith_n justifi_v we_o meaning_n none_o other_o thing_n than_o saint_n paul_n mean_v when_o he_o say_v faith_n without_o work_n justifi_v us._n and_o because_o all_o this_o be_v bring_v to_o pass_v through_o the_o only_a merit_n and_o deserving_n of_o our_o saviour_n christ_n &_o not_o through_o our_o merit_n or_o through_o the_o merit_n of_o any_o virtue_n y_z t_z we_o have_v within_o we_o or_o of_o any_o work_n that_o come_v from_o we_o therefore_o in_o that_o respect_n of_o merit_n &_o deserve_n we_o renounce_v as_o
