John Maclaurin

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents excerpts from John Maclaurin's “Glorying in the Cross of Christ” in Sermons and Essays. By the Late Reverend Mr John McLaurin, One of the Ministers of Glasgow (1755). McLaurin is known for his pastoral work and promotion of the revivals, but he also had a passion for theology. During the 1740s he joined William McCulloch and James Robe in support of the Great Awakening that was taking place in America, Britain, and Continental Europe. He helped organize a “concert for prayer” whereby ministers on both sides of the Atlantic agreed to pray regularly for the continued success of the apparent worldwide spiritual resurgence. In his sermon, based on Galatians 6:14, Maclaurin declared that eternal salvation is only possible through the death of Jesus Christ. He emphasizes the importance of Christ's death on the cross to evangelicals of all generations.
