My desire is . . .
1. To exalt the grace of God.
2. To proclaim salvation alone through the blood
and righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ.
3. To declare the sinfulness, helplessness, and
hopelessness of man in a state of nature.
4. To describe, as far as I am able, the living
experience of the saints of God in their trials,
temptations, and sorrows--and in their
consolations and blessings.
