Do Not Legalize the Gospel


“In every duty look at Christ; before duty, to pardon; in duty, to assist; after duty, to accept. Without this it is but carnal, careless duty.

Do not legalize the gospel as if part remained for you to do, or suffer, and Christ were but a half Mediator; as if you must bear part of your own sin, and make some satisfaction.

Let sin break your heart, but not your hope in the gospel.”

— Thomas Wilcox, "Honey out of the Rock"
