if we wil be christes disciples we must denye our selues, take vp our crosse & folow christ: we cānot serue two maisters: if we seke christs kingome, we must also seke for the righteousnes thereof: to the peticion of, (let thy kingdome come) we must ioyne, thy wil be done, done, done, on erth as it is in heauen: if we will not be doers of the word, but hearers of it only, we sore deceue our selues: if we heare the gospell and loue it not, we declare our selues to be but fooles, and builders vpon the sande. The lordes spirite hateth fayning: disceatfulnes the lord abhorreth: if we come to him, we must beware we come not to him with a double hart. For then may chaunce that god wil answere vs according to the block which is in our hart, and so we shal deceaue our selues, and others. MarginaliaGood conscience.To fayth see that we couple a good consciēce, lest we make a shipwreck. To the lord we must come with feare and reuerēce: if we wil be gospellers we must be christs, if we be christs we must crucify our flesh, with the lusts and concupiscences therof: if we wilbe vnder grace, sinne muste not beare rule in vs: we may not come to the lord, and draw high to him with lippes, and leaue our hartes elswhere, lest the lords wrath waxe whotte, and he take from vs the good remaynyng. In no case cā the kingdome of christ approch to them that repent not. Therfore my dearly beloued, let vs repent and be hartely sory that we haue so carnally, so hipocritically, so couetously, so vayne gloriously, professed the gospel. For al these I confes of my self to the glory of god þt he may couer mine offenses in the day of iudgmēt. Let the anger & plages of god, most iustly fallen vpon vs, be applied to euery one of our deserts, that from the bottome of our herts euery of vs may say: it is I Lorde that haue sinned against the: it is myne hipocrisy, my vayn glory, my couetousnes, vncleanes carnality, securitie, idlenes, vnthākfullnes, selfe loue and such like, which haue deserued the taking away of our good kyng, of thy worde and true religyon, of thy good mynysters by exile, prysonment, and deth: it is my wyckednes, that causeth succes and increase of autoritye, & peace to thine enemies. Oh be mercifull, be mercifull vnto vs. Turne to vs agayn, oh lorde of hostes and turne vs vnto the: correcte vs, but not in thy fury, leste we be consumed in thine anger: chastice vs not in thy wrathfull displeasure: reproue vs not, but in the midds of thyne anger remember thy mercy. For if thou wilt mark what is done amisse, who shalbe able to abide it? But with the is mercifullnes, that thou mightest be worshipped: oh then be mercifull vnto vs that we might truly worshyp thee. Helpe vs, for the glory of thy name: be mercifull vnto oure sins for they are greate: oh heale vs, and helpe vs for thine honor. Let not the wicked people say, where is their god &c. On this sorte my righte derely beloued, let vs hartely bewaile our sīnes repent vs of our former euil life, hartely and ernestly purpose to amend our liues in al things, continually watch in MarginaliaPrayer. Hearing & reading the holy scriptures.prayer, dilygently and reuerently attend, heare, and reade the holy scriptures labour after our vocation to amend oure brethrē. Let vs reproue the workes of darknes Let vs flye from all idolatrye. Let vs abhorre the antichristian and romish rotten seruice, detest the popish masse, abrenounce theyr romish God, prepare our selues to the crosse, be obediente to all that bee in authoritie, in all thynges

that be not againste God and his worde: for then answere with the Apostles: MarginaliaObedience to magistrates in al that is not against gods wordit is more mete to obey god then man: how beit, neuer for any thing resiste, or rise against the magistrates. Auenge not your selues, but cōmit your cause to the lord, to whō vengeaunce pertaineth, & he in his time will reward it: if ye feele in your selues an hope & trust in god, that he wil neuer tempte you aboue that he wil make you hable to beare, be assured the lord wilbe true to you: & you shal be hable to beare all bruntes: But if you wante this hope, flee and get you hence, rather then by your tarying, gods name should be dishonored. In sūme: cast your care on the lord, knowing for most cettain, that he is careful for you: with him ar al the heares of your head nōbred, so that not one of thē shall pearish without his good pleasure, & wil: much more then, nothing shal happē to youre bodies whiche shall not be profitable, how so euer for a time it seme otherwise to your senses: MarginaliaWe ought to depende vpon gods prouidence alwayes.hang on the prouidence of god, not only whē you haue meanes to help you, but also whē you haue no meanes: yea when all meanes be a gainst you. Geue him this honor, which of all other thinges he most chiefly requireth at youre hands: namely, beleue that you are his children through Christ: that he is your father and God through him that he loueth you, pardoneth you all your offenses, he is with you in trouble and wilbe with you for euer. Whē you fal, he wil put vnder his hand you shall not lie still: tofore you call vpō him, he heareth you: out of euill he will finally bringe you, & deliuer you to his eternall ioye. Doubt not my dearly beloued herof, doubt not I say: this wil god your father do for you in respect, not of your selues, but in respect of christ your captaine your pastor, youre keper, oute of whose hands none shalbe hable to catch you. In him be quiet, & often cōsider your dignitie: namely, how that you be gods childrē, the sainctes of god, citizens of heauen, tēples of the holy ghost, the thrones of God, mēbers of Christ, and lords ouer all. Therfore be ashamed to think, speake, or do any thing that should be vnsemly for gods childrē, gods saincts, christes mēbers. &c. meruel not though the deuill, and the worlde hate you, though ye be persecuted here: for the seruaunt is not aboue his master. Couet not earthly riches. feare not the power of mā, loue not this world, nor things that be in this worlde: but longe for the Lord Iesus his cōming, at which time your bodies shalbe made like vnto his glorious body: whē he appeareth you shalbe like vnto him: when your life thus shalbe reueled, then shal ye appere with him in glorie. In the meane season liue in hope hereof. MarginaliaWe muste liue in the faith of Christ.Let the life you leade be in the faith of the sonne of god: for the iust doth liue by fayth, which faithe flieth frō all euill, & foloweth the word of God, as a lantern to her feete, and a lighte to her steppes: her eies be aboue where christ is. MarginaliaThe propertye of fayth.She beholdeth not the things present, but rather things to come: she glorieth in afflictions, she knoweth that thafflictiōs of this lyfe ar not like to be cōpared to the glory which god wil reuele to vs & in vs. Of this glori god graūt vs here a liuely tast: then shal we rūne after the sent it sēdeth forth. It will make vs valiant mē to take to vs the kingdom of God: whyther the lord of mercie brīg vs in his good time through Chryst our Lorde, to whom with the father and the holy ghost, three persons and one God, be al honor and glory worlde without ende Amen.
