The same great doctrines, as in St. Paul's Epistles, are here
applied to same practical purposes. And this epistle is
remarkable for the sweetness, gentleness, and humble Love, with
which it is written. It gives a short, and yet a very clear
summary, both of the consolations and the instructions needful
for the encouragement and direction of a Christian in his
Journey to Heaven, raising his thoughts and desires to that
happiness, and strengthening him against all opposition in the
way, both from corruption within, and temptations and
Afflictions without.
