"Christ promises us eternal life on condition of our coming to Him: but it is such a coming as He directed the young man to, who came to inquire what he should do that he might have eternal life; Christ bade him go and sell all that he had, and come to Him, and follow Him. If he had consented in his heart to the proposal, and had therein come to Christ in his heart, the proper evidence of it would have been his doing of it; and therin his coming to Christ would have been made perfect."
