‘Sermon on Ezekiel 33:11’  (1765)

“III.  God tells us, that sinners will their death, ‘Why will ye die,’ saith God, — The way which sinners take is the way of death, and it is their voluntary choice, they are not force’t to it by God, and neither are they drag’d to by the Devil — but it is their free will & act— Adam acted voluntarily in what he did —

IV.  God expressly tells us in our text and context, that He has no pleasure in the death of a sinner, but yt [that] he turn and live — God wills the life and eternal salvation of poor sinners turn ye turn ye for why will ye die — God is sincere, hearty, and earnest in his will, it is plainly to be seen and understood by word, which is his revealed will to the children,— in particular his amazing will to save sinners is to be discovered in his sending his dearly beloved and only begotten Son into this world in amazing manner as He did.”
