VOLUME 3: WORKS
SERMON: HOSEA 14:2,3
"The Lord is pleased not only to enter into covenant with us, but to bind Himself to the performance of what He promiseth. Though whatever He bestow upon us, is all matter of mere and most free grace, wherein He is no debtor to us at all, yet He is pleased to bind Himself unto acts of grace. Men love to have all their works of favor free, and to reserve to themselves a power of alteration or revocation, as themselves shall please. But God is pleased, that His gifts should take upon them in some sense the condition of debts; and although He can owe nothing to the creature, yet He is contented to be a debtor to His own promises; and having at first in mercy made it, His truth is after engaged to the performance of it.
His word is established in Heaven; with Him "there is no variableness, nor shadow of change;" His "promises are not Yea and Nay, but in Christ, Amen." If He speak a thing, it shall not fail."
