John Gill on the Eternal State

“So the heavenly glory is not obtained by the works of men, though they naturally think they must do some good thing to inherit eternal life; nor is it to be purchased, if a man would give all the substance of his house for it it would utterly be condemened: it is bequeathed to saints by their heavenly Father, whose good pleasure is to give them the kingdom; and this he gives by will, by testament, and which comes to them, upon, and through the death of the testator Jesus Christ.”

“The Glorious State of the Saints in Heaven” – A Sermon Preached to the Society which Support the Wednesday’s Evening Lecture in Cannon-Street, London – December 31, 1755.
