Theophilus Gale (1628–1678) on Christ's Heart in the Gospel Offer

The offers of Grace made in the Gospel, or Covenant of Grace, are very Real, and Cordial: There is never a line, no nor a word of the Gospel, but it carries Christ's heart wrapt up in it: Every promise is a love-letter sent by Christ, to assure the sinner, how affectionate his heart is set towards him: There is not an expression that drops from the mouth of Christ, but is full of bleeding Affection: Every promise gives the sinner a good Law right to Grace, provided that he accept of it when offered: If Christ be real in any thing, he is so in the offers of Grace to sinners.
Theophilus Gale, Christ's Tears for Jerusalem's Unbelief and Ruine (London: Printed for M. Widdowes at the Green Dragon in St. Pauls Church-Yard, 1679), 106.
