SAVED BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH.
Through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, these and all other blessings of the gospel become ours. Fear is lost, judgment is taken away, and instead of all that, we instantaneously become children of God. And this may be obtained by all sinners here present. There are such, in all probability, here at this moment, who are still in the bonds of unrighteousness, who are going on their way in spiritual darkness—who belong to the kingdom of darkness—who are dead in trespasses and sins.
To such I have to say, instantaneously you may obtain the forgiveness of your sins, be made alive in Christ Jesus, and be “delivered from the powers of darkness, and translated into the kingdom of His dear Son; “but this is alone to be obtained by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

If this title was applied to these oft-provoking and stiff-necked Israelites—if they were called “Jeshurun”— the righteous ones, how much more abundantly is this applicable to those who are united to the Lord Jesus Christ, and who partake by faith of His perfect righteousness?
Now, regarding these Israelites, it is here stated that “There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun.” There is no god like unto their God. They had the living God, while others had but dead idols.
