The Extent and Reasonableness of Self-Denial by George Whitefield

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
