Chapter 7: Of God’s Covenant with Man (III)

III. Man, by his fall, having made himself incapable of life by that covenant, the Lord was pleased to make a second,(a) commonly called the covenant of grace; wherein He freely offers unto sinners life and salvation by Jesus Christ; requiring of them faith in Him, that they may be saved,(b) and promising to give unto all those that are ordained unto eternal life His Holy Spirit, to make them willing, and able to believe.(c)

(a) Galatians 3:21; Romans 8:3; Romans 3:20, 21; Genesis 3:15; Isaiah 42:6

(b) Mark 16:15, 16; John 3:16; Romans 10:6, 9; Galatians 3:11

(c) Ezekiel 36:26, 27; John 6:44, 45
