Interest in Christ
A term often made use of in the religious world; and implies our having a right to claim him as our mediator, surety, advocate, and saviour, and with him all thse spiritual blessings which are purchased and applied by him to those whom he has redeemed. The term, "having a right to claim him, " perhaps, is preferable to that often used, "being enabled to claim him, " as many have an interest in Christ who are destitute of that assurance which gives them a comfortable sense thereof. Ridgley's Div. 228, 3d. edit. Pike's Cases of Conscience, p. 130.
