INVOCATION OF CHRIST. BY GEORGE BURDER Romans x. 13. For whosoerer shall call upon the name of the LoRd, shall be saved. THE Jews were for many ages the peculiar peo-ple of God. The introduction of the Gentiles into the church, was a mystery which had been hid-den from the world ; and therefore when that great event took place, it was difficult to reconcile the Jewish Christians to it. The apostles themselves, who were Jews, were not forward to obey their Master's command — '' Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel in every nation, and to every crea-ture." God led them to it, as it were, by miracles ; and the apostles found it necessary to quote passages from those prophets who had predicted this event ; and to shew the Jews how they were then fulfilling. Of this nature and design are the words of our text, which are quoted from the prophecy of Joel, (ch. ii 32.) which scripture was a prediction of the pouring out of the Holy Spirit, on the day of Pente-cost, and is so applied by St. Peter, in the second

chapter of the Acts of the Apostles. The words of our text are, " Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved j" in the prophet Joel, it is, *^ Whosoever shall call upon the name of Jehovah shall be saved." Doubtless, Jesus Christ is the prrson intended in the text, as all the verses connected with it clearly shew : and, if so, this pas-sage of scripture, like many others, proves that VOL. III. B b 278 SERMON LXXXIX. Jehovah, the name of the divine essence, is applica-ble to our Lord Jesus Christ, and affords, among many others, an unanswerable proof of his divinity. For the illustration and profitable use of these words, I shall, First, Make a few observations upon them j and, Secondly, Shew more particularly that Jesus

Christ is properly an object of religious worship. In the first place we shall make a few observations on the words of the text — ^^ Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.*' 1. Salvation is the grand concern of an awakened sinner. It is the grand concern of him who '* calls tipon the name of the Lord," as the words " shall be saved," plainly shew. This was the object the apostle had in view, as you find in the first verse of this chapter — " Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved ;" and in the ninth verse, " If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be savedJ*^ Salvation is deliverance — deliverance from imminent danger, the danger of God's eternal wrath — the " wrath to come," and which will ever remain, *' the wrath to come." The person who calls upon the name of the Lord, is one who has been convinced that he has broken the holy law of God, and incurred its dreadful penalty, which is eternal death ; he is
