Whitefield’s sermon Of Justification by CHRIST begins with I Cor. Vi. II. But ye are Justified. The whole Verse runs thus:—And such were some of you; but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the Names of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by the Spirit of our God.
This sermon is making a strong stamen, that there is no other Name give under Heaven whereby they can be saved, but that of JESUS CHRIST and we are freely justified from all our Sins by the precious Blood of JESUS CHRIST. Therefore, the title, Of Justification by Christ. Whitefield refers to a previous sermon/pamphlet, The Nature and Necessity of our New Birth in Christ Jesus. You might want to read that one before this one.
Whitefield divides this sermon into three parts.
I. First, WHAT is meant by the Word Justified.
II. Secondly, I shall endeavour to prove, individual Person in particular, stands in need of being justified.
III. Thirdly and lastly, That there is no possibility of obtaining the Justification, which we so much want, but by the precious Blood of JESUS CHRIST. See page six below:
