PIOUS COMMUNICANT.

Lecture I.

ON THE NATURE OF FAITH.

a

UN an occasion like the present, when invited to an attendance on the holy Supper of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, to the end that your approach to that ordinance may contribute to your profit, we propose in this, and, if the Lord permit, in several succeeding lectures, to address you on the nature and the blefed effects which flow from true and saving faith. In the course of the discussion of these, many other truths, connected with them, will be elucidated, we hope in so plain, and yet in so faithful a manner, that on the one hand the natural man, God blessing our endeavours, may be reclaimed from his evil pursuits, and be directed in those paths which lead to happiness and eternal glory; and on the other, the child of God, amidst all his fears, doubts, and discouragements, may be counselled and directed, made to increase in faith, and wait upon his Father at the Redeemer's table in the experience of great peace and joy in believing.
