Patrick Hamilton on "Law and Gospel"
Another quote from Charles Bridges’ The Christian Ministry on "the Law and Gospel" (p. 231, n. 1). This one is from the Scots Worthy Patrick Hamilton:
The law showeth us our sin—the gospel showeth us a remedy for it.
The law showeth us our condemnation—the gospel showeth us our redemption.
The law is the word of ire—the gospel is the word of grace.
The law is the word of despair—the gospel is the word of comfort.
The law is the word of disquietude—the gospel is the word of peace.
