Our first day in this city was the'pabbath.
Glad are we now that it was, since we thus got
a very favorable impression of the ioral and
Christian character of thousands. of its citi
zens by the multitudes that attended church,
before we saw any special ,manifestations of
those vices so common in all such planes as
We worshipped in' the Secon4. Presby
terian church, of which Aroolgs is pas
tor, and heard two good ' sermons ( qpe in the
morning and the'other in the evening,) from
ministers who were on their way to the AS'
Aembly. The congregations were Urge, and
quite attentive; and from statements made
by the pastor we were gratified b learn that
the Spirit of God was' wking graciously
upon the hearts of many:;'that tiot a few
were turning to the' Lord; and from the
number of prayer-meetings annopnoed for
the coming week', it 'was evident that the
people, were , determined not to forget the
assembling' of themselves together as the
manner of some is. Monday bight also we
Attended service in this same Aura, and

saw and heard. .
Presbyterianism is strong andin a healthy
condition in St. Louis. Its ministers. rank
high ,as men of piety and power ; and its
members are among the most influential, in
telligent and wealthy citizens= of the place.
Never did we see,a Christian people we loved
more nso limited an acquaintance. Alay
dott bless them.
Other 'Evangelical, denominations are also
prosperous and numerous, as we are told;
and from ihe great number of elegant
church edifices that meet the eye in every
part of the city, this is doubtless true.
But Roine is also strong . She was first
to plant her standards', here. She gave
name 'to the 'city; she not only has the
'strength of ntintbers, bnt of wealth. The

Letter v I.—Jusoficci tion is by Faith
Therefore, being justified by faith, we have.peaoe
with God, through our Lord Jesus Christ.—
Rom. vi L ' ' ' •
MY DEAR FRIEND : — We have seen what
fftistification is, why we need it, and that
justification is not of works—not by the
deeds of the law .Rom. : 9-3 L How
then can we be justified 7 How can man be
just with God ?—job xxv 4. The Bible
must answer; and here we learn , four , things.
And first, that as there is a legal union be
tween Christ and his people from, eternity,
in virtue of which he is their legal Head,
their Representative, the Surety and Sub
stitute,, so in:the fulfillment of the Covenant
of grace of which he is Mediator, he took
lke.sinner's place, was made in the likeness
of sinful' flesh; obeyed the law in our nature,
and died in our stead, and thus satisfied the
justice of - Goa for us; so God can be just
and yet justify, because our Surety has met
,the demands of - tie law in our stead, both
in its precept and its penalty. As cons
downed sinners, we need two things, pardon
and, acceptance—forgiveness for our sins,
and a righteousness to entitle us to heaven.
By his death, Christ has purchased our par
don ; by his obedience he has wrought. out a
righteousness which gives us a title to heav
en. The law has a two-fold claim upon, us,
a claim of obedience, and a claim of penalty,
for we have broken it. Christ in our stead
has met the fall demands of the law in both
these respects; he has obeyed it, and borne
its penalty, and thus fulfilled for us all
righteousness—paid our twofold debt to
justice—and wrought out by his obedience
unto death an alVeufficient righteousness for
our complete justification before God. The
justice of God is satisfied by Jesus Christ
our Surety, oar legal Head and Substitute.
He has paid our debt; he has made an infi
nite and all-sufficient atonement, being him
self made a curse for us.—Rom. iii: 21--
26 ; 2. Cor. v : : . 21; Gal. in : 13; Heb. x
The next point is this : The infinite atone
ment of Jeans Christ, his doing and. dying,
his fioished work, his righteousness, is the
only ground of justification. His obedience
unto death is our justifying righteousness.
This is the righteousness of Christ which is
imputed unto us; and it is often called in
Scripture the righteousness of God, as it is
that righteousness which God has provided
for our justification, and which is freely offer
ed to us in the Gospel. Thus Paul, in Rom..
1: 16, 17, says, lam not ashamed of the
Gospel of Christ, for therein is the right
eousness of God revealed; and hence, in
Rom. iii: 20-26, ho thus sets forth the
Gospel method of justification : Now the
righteousness of God without the law is
manifested, being witnessed by the law and
the prophets; even the righteousness of
God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto
all and upon all them that believe; for there
is no difference : for all have pinned, and
come short of the glory of God ;',being-justi
fied freely by his grace through the redemp
tion that is in Christ Jesus : whom tied
hath set forth to be a propitiation through
faith in his blood, to declare his rtghteons
ness for the remission of sins that are past,
through the forbearance of God; to declare,
I say, at this time his righteousness : that
he might be just, and the justifier of him
which believeth' in Jesus.—See Hodge on
Rom. i : 16-18; and iii: 20-26.
This brings us to the next point, which
is, that the only way we can become in
terested in this righteousness of God is by
faith alone. The righteousness of God is
by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon
all that believe. r —ROm. iii , : 22. It is re
ceived by faith alone; and hence it is upon
believers only, while it is offered to all, and
most be received by faith. Hence faith is
a -saving grace. Yet there is nothing Mer
itorious in faith; it does not justify as our
act, or because it is a wonderful instance.of
trust or confidence, far it is but the:instru
ment, the hand as it were, by which we
receive, .or, lay hold on, or accept, or close
with Christ, as he is reely offered to, us.
Yet we must believe, or we cannot be sated.
And the Spirit works faith in us and unites
us to Christ in
,:effectual calling, so that re
generation and justification are inseparably
connected ; "
..the regenerated are justified,. as
it is written, •whom he called, them he also
justifted.--:-Rom. 28-30;.,C0n. Faith,
Chap. xi.; Larger Cat., Ques.. 70-77;
Short Cat., ..Ques. 30-33. Of course the
justified are regenerated and walk in new
ness of life; and so their. justification is
proved by ; theft. good *mks,, or theirpro
gressive. sanctificatitn. So justification by
faith leads to holiness of heart and life.
Faith does not justify as a work but good
works are fruiti and evidences of faith.
Vincent says, '
," Faith is'a saving graoe, not
by the act of believing, as an act;'for then
it would save as a work : whereas we are
saved by faith in opposition to all works :
but faith is a, saving grace, as aninstrument,
apprehending and applying Jesus Christ
and his perfect righteousness, whereby alone
we are ,saved. For God se loved the world,
that he gave his only , begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in him should not per
ish, but have' everlasting life."—John iii:
16; Vincent's Catechism, Ques. 86: 1;
page 290, published by Presbyterian Board
This bring's us to the fourth and lait point,
viz.: When our minds are stirringly enlight
ened, and we see and feel, ourselves sinners
polluted and perishing, and realize our need
of c3hrist, and see a fitness in him to our
wants, and we ire enabled 'to receive Jest's
Christ by faith as he is offered to us in the
Gosiel, and to , lay hold on him and put our
trust in him, and rest,,reeline, and rely upon
him alone for salvation, then, on the ground
of his righteousness, we are forgiven and
accepted as righteous, and have peace with
God and a title to heaven.—Rom. v : 1.
Believing—receiving Christ and resting on
him—net only are our etas forgiven, but his
righteousness is imputed to us; it is set to
our account, and we , are regarded and treat
ed as righteous; yea, we , •have a title to
heaven on the ground of what. Christ has
done; we are regarded and treated as if we
were just and innocent, or as if the right
eousness of Christ were ours, as 'it is ours
by imputation; yea, so far as the law is
concerned, w e , are i regarded and treated as
if We had never sinned, for ive are ,delivered
from condemnation, we have a title to eter
nal life, Jesus Christ is made unto us right
eousness, and there isnow no condemnation
to them which are'in Christ Jesus.—Rom.
viii : 1: He is the Lout our righte.ousness.
-Jeri xxiii: 6. Yea, as he has been made
sin'for us, so we are made the righteousness
of God in him.-2. Cor. 2L Clothed
with his righteousness, we are complete in
him and treated as righteous.—Col. ri : 10.
Therefore being justified by faith , we have
-peace with God through our Lord Jesus
Christ.—Rom. v : 1.
This'll] the Scriptural method of justifi
cation. This is the way of salvation; this
is the way to heaven- How plain 1 How
beautiful I How lovely 1 How glorious !
Jesus obeys and dies, justice is satisfied, and
man lives 1 Where sin abounded, grace
much more abounds; as sin bath reigned
unto death, even so grace reigns through
righteousness unto eternal life, by Jesus
Christ our Lord.—Rom. v : 12-21.
Now, in conclusion, I have two or three
ques,tions. to ask. And, first, Are you re
generated:? Have you been born again ?
And have you the certain and infallible ev
idences of , this change 7 ,Itemember its ne
cessity—you must.. be born again ! Re
member its nature—it is the new creation
of the soul ! Remember the Agent—it is
the work. of God ! you,. can not convert
yourself! After all your efforts, you are
dependent upon the, grace of God ! After
all your strivings, you will perish at last, if
God do not have mercy upon you ;- and you
had better begin to cry unto him now, lest
you die unrenewed, and Rerish in your sins!
Let your prayer be, God be merciful, to me
a sinner I—John iii : 1-10 ; Luke xviii:
Again have' you
,received. Jesus Christ
by faith ? You must receive him and trust
in him, or perish`; have you received him ?
Have you felt your need of him ? Have
you seen a suitableness in him. to your wants.
'and necessities ? his ability and his willing
ness to save? to save you and to save you
now? and have you accepted him and put
your trust in him ? and do you approve and
delight in the way of salvation through
him? Is be the Lord y-ouerighteousuess ?
Him he of God been made righteousness to
you ? Have you received him ? Have
you embraced him ? Do you love him and
trust him ? Do you believe ? Are you
justified ? Are you justified ?
If not, then I aRk another question
Will you receive Jesus Christ now ? You
have delayed too long already. He is free
ly offered to you, and fully offered; will
you receive him ? Will you accept him ?
Will you believe?
"Say, wiU you to Mount Zion go?
Say, will you have this Christ or no?"
This is the way to heaven, will you walk in
it? Will you receive. Jesus Christ? How
long halt you ? You are convinced of sin;
you feel condemned;. the Spirit is moving
upon your soul; but he will not always
strive ! The Spirit may leave you! Death
may come! And then you are lost 1 0,
decide now Come to Christ, sinner, come
to - Christ, and you shall be saved !
and you shall live !
The Epistles to the Ephesians and the
Colossians treat of regeneration ; read them
through. The Epistles to the Romans and
the Galatians treat of justification; read
them through. Read and study Romans,
Galatians,Ephesians, Philippians and Colos
sians ; an to help you in your studies, read
Hodge on Romans, Luther on Galatians,
Hodge and M'Ghee on Ephesians, Daille on
Philippians and Colossians, and Scott's
Cormientary on the whole Bible. Cling to
God's _Word; believe and obey the truth;
repent of sin, seek the regenerating and
sanctifying influences of the Holy Ghost,
and accept of Jesus Christ as your Saviour;
rely upon him for salvation; live to the
glory of God ; and then. it may
,be said of
you, But of him are ye in Christ Jesus,
who of God is made unto us wisdom, and
righteousness, and sanctification, and re
demption; that, according as it is written,
He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
