God's Covenant and Our Duty

198 pages3 hours


Samuel Willard (1640-1707) was a reformed preacher of the Gospel in the old South Boston Church in New England, president of Harvard University, and one of the great Calvinistic teachers of his day.

Willard teaches Christians about God's condescension to us by way of His covenant, and in light of that, how we are to live before Him. He covers the basics of the Covenant of Redemption, Covenant or Works and Covenant of Grace, to fully explain the biblical mandate and obligation to perform our duty in God's covenant. Christians cannot just profess that Christ is Lord; their outward actions must demonstrate the reality of the Spirit's work in their lives. He covers what it means to "keep covenant" with God, what a covenant breaker is, and how we are to use the covenant promises found in Scripture for our sanctification.
