The Saint's Will Judge the World, and Other Sermons

 This work is the final available sermon compilation of Cawdrey. His first sermon is, “The Saints Shall Judge the World,” from Revelation 20:4, “And I saw seats, and they say upon them, and judgment was given unto them,” and Psalm 149:9, “Such honor have all his saints.” This sermon is extremely unique explaining a topic that the Christian may never hear from any preacher or pulpit in today’s modern age. Even though Cawdrey preached it 400 years ago it is exceedingly relevant in our day, and biblically powerful. His second sermon is on the topic of hypocrisy called, “A Close Hypocrite Discovered,” from Luke 18:11, “God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican,” and he ties this masterfully into 1 Corinthians 13:6, “Love rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth together with the truth.” His last sermon is against antinomian sentiments called, “The Lawfulness of Doing Good out of Hope of Reward.” It springs from Hebrews 6:19, “Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, sure and steadfast, and entering into that which is within the veil,” and 2 John 1:8, “That we may receive a full reward,” where he covers hope, love and faith. It serves to demonstrate what true hope is and how it is grounded in a biblical love to Christ.

This work is not a scan or facsimile, has been carefully transcribed by hand being made easy to read in modern English, and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.

About the author

Daniel Cawdrey (1588-1664) was a Calvinistic Presbyterian minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He was a man of great consideration, eminently learned, and a noted member of the Westminster Assembly. He preached sometimes to the members of parliament…was ejected from his living at Great Billing, and separated from his friends and his flock by the Act of Uniformity, after having labored, for the edification of his people in that place for 37 years. He was among the best puritan scholars of his day.

In 1987, an IRA bomb buried Gordon Wilson and his twenty-year-old daughter beneath five feet of rubble. Gordon alone survived. And forgave. He said of the bombers, "I have lost my daughter, but I bear no grudge. . . . I shall pray, tonight and every night, that God will forgive them."His words caught the media’s ear--and out of one man’s grief, the world got a glimpse of grace.Grace is the church’s great distinctive. It’s the one thing the world cannot duplicate, and the one thing it craves above all else--for only grace can bring hope and transformation to a jaded world.In What’s So Amazing About Grace? award-winning author Philip Yancey explores grace at street level. If grace is God’s love for the undeserving, he asks, then what does it look like in action? And if Christians are its sole dispensers, then how are we doing at lavishing grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy?Yancey sets grace in the midst of life’s stark images, tests its mettle against horrific "ungrace." Can grace survive in the midst of such atrocities as the Nazi holocaust? Can it triumph over the brutality of the Ku Klux Klan? Should any grace at all be shown to the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer, who killed and cannibalized seventeen young men?Grace does not excuse sin, says Yancey, but it treasures the sinner. True grace is shocking, scandalous. It shakes our conventions with its insistence on getting close to sinners and touching them with mercy and hope. It forgives the unfaithful spouse, the racist, the child abuser. It loves today’s AIDS-ridden addict as much as the tax collector of Jesus’ day.In his most personal and provocative book ever, Yancey offers compelling, true portraits of grace’s life-changing power. He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He asks, How can Christians contend graciously with moral issues that threaten all they hold dear?And he challenges us to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, What’s So Amazing About Grace?
