Charles Bridges Exulting Grace

We are not to commence with the outskirts of the gospel, and so reason on step by step till we come to Christ--thus keeping the sinner waiting in the dark. He wants to see the King. There needs no long ceremonial of approach from a distance. Let the great object be placed in immediate view. Every thing short of this is a grand impertinence. The sinner is dying, he is in instant, urgent, need of the physician and the remedy. The brazen serpent must be lifted up before him--not because he believes: be because he needs, and that he may believe.
