William Burkitt (1650-1703) on Christ's Sufficiency

"Observe 4. The extent of Christ’s death; he tasted death for every man; that is, Christ by his death has made God propitious to every man, made sin remissible, and every man saveable; the death of Christ renders God willing to be reconciled unto all sinners; faith renders him actually reconciled. The reason why every man doth not obtain salvation is not for want of a sufficient propitiation."
William Burkitt, Expository Notes With Practical Observations on the New Testament (Philadelphia: Sorin & Ball, 1844), 2:552.
