"We assemble ourselves to learn that there is forgiveness with God through Christ; to pray that we may be made partakers of it; to bless and praise God for our interest in it; to engage ourselves unto that obedience which he requires upon the account of it [namely killing our sin, conforming to the image of Christ, and communicating his gospel to all people everywhere]. And were this constantly upon our minds and in our designs, we might be more established in the faith of it than, it may be, the most of us are."
