Chapter 13) Of Sanctification

Chapter 12) Of Adoption

Chapter 14) Of Saving Faith

1. They who are once effectually called and regenerated, having a new heart and a new spirit created in them, are further sanctified, really and personally, through the virtue of Christ’s death and resurrection,1 by His Word and Spirit dwelling in them:2 the dominion of the whole body of sin is destroyed,3 and the several lusts thereof are more and more weakened and mortified;4 and they more and more quickened and strengthened in all saving graces,5 to the practice of true holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.6

1. I Cor. 6:11; Acts 20:32; Phil. 3:10; Rom. 6:5, 6
2. John 17:17; Eph. 5:26; II Thess. 2:13
3. Rom. 6:6, 14
4. Gal. 5:24; Rom. 8:13
5. Col. 1:11; Eph. 3:16, 17, 18, 19
6. II Cor. 7:1; Heb. 12:14

2. This sanctification is throughout, in the whole man;7 yet imperfect in this life, there abiding still some remnants of corruption in every part:8 whence ariseth a continual and irreconcilable war; the flesh lusting against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh.9

7. I Thess. 5:23
8. I John 1:10; Rom. 7:18, 23; Phil. 3:12
9. Gal. 5:17; I Pet. 2:11

3. In which war, although the remaining corruption, for a time, may much prevail;10 yet through the continual supply of strength from the sanctifying Spirit of Christ, the regenerate part doth overcome;11 and so, the saints grow in grace,12 perfecting holiness in the fear of God.13

10. Rom. 7:23
11. Rom. 6:14; I John 5:4; Eph. 4:15, 16
12. II Pet. 3:18; II Cor. 3:18
13. II Cor. 7:1
