The Law in Evangelism

What is this that you have done? God would here awaken her to a sense of her crime and danger, and therefore, as it were, thunders in her ears: for the law must be preached to self-righteous sinners. Secure sinners must hear the thunderings of Mount Sinai, before we bring them to Mount Zion. They, who never preach up the law, it is to be feared, are unskillful in delivering the glad tidings of the gospel. Every minister should be a Boanerges, a son of thunder, as well as a Barnabus, a son of consolation. There was a earthquake and a whirlwind, before the small still voice came to Elijah. We must first show people they are condemned, and then show them how they must be saved. But how and when to preach the Law, and when to apply the promises of the gospel, wisdom is profitable to direct. "And the Lord God said unto the women. " What is this that you have done?"

(George Whitefield " The seed of the Women, and the seed of the Serpent")
