This sermon/pamphlet about Self-Denial is based off Luke ix.23.
And He said unto them all, If any Man will come after me, let him deny himself.
Whitefield divides this sermon into three sections.
- First, THE Nature of the Self-denial recommended in the text; and in how many Respects we must deny ourselves, in order to come after JESUS CHRIST.
- SECONDLY, I SHALL endeavour to prove the Universality and Reasonableness of this Duty of Self-denial.
- Thirdly and lastly, I SHALL offer some Considerations, which may serve as so many Motives to reconcile us to, and quicken us in the Practice of this Doctrine of Self-denial.
