Chap. xiii. Of Sanctification S

1

THEY who are 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 Christs death and resurrection by his word and spirit dwelling in them the dominion of the whole body of sin is destroyed and the severall lusts thereof are more and more weakened and mortified and they more and more quickened and strengthened in all saving graces to the practise of true holiness without which no man shall see the Lord

2

THIS sanctification is throughout in the whole man yet imperfect in this life there abideth still some remnants of corruption in every part whence ariseth a continuall and irreconcileable war the flesh lusting against the spirit and the spirit against the flesh

3

IN which war although the remaining corruption for a time may much prevail yet through the continuall supply of strength from the sanctifying spirit of Christ the regenerate part doth overcome and so the saints grow in grace perfecting holiness in the fear of God
