This work is a collection of Gasper Hickes'... More > surviving sermons. His first sermon is on Isaiah 28:5-6, “In that day shall the Lord of hosts be for a crown of glory…for his people….” It is a powerful sermon demonstrating the presence and the favor of God as the glorious ornament of a godly person.
The second sermon is on the advantage of having afflictions, based on Hosea 5:15, “In their affliction they will seek me early.” God’s people seek him early and earnestly in affliction.
The last is on Acts 13:36, “For David...fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption.” It is exceedingly comfortable to the godly man, that he is the most useful serviceable creature that lives on earth.
