To my Honoured, and his very good Mother, Mis. Elizabeth Shipton.
THE MYSTERY OF AFFLICTIONS.
I lay down these two Propositions.
Now if you please, I shall discourse, and discover, That all Afflictions work for our good, these three severall wayes. 1. By promoting Comfort. 2. By promoting Grace. 3. By promoting Glory.
I must enlarge my Discourse, to shew you, That this Mystery of Afflictions works com∣fort in our hearts two wayes.
And here I must again enlarge my Dis∣course, to shew, That the Mystery of Affli∣ctions is such, that it works this grace upon the hearts of all Christians these foure se∣verall wayes.
I come now to the second Proposition.
