Chapter 13: Of Sanctification (I)

I. 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,(a) by His Word and Spirit dwelling in them:(b) the dominion of the whole body of sin is destroyed,(c) and the several lusts thereof are more and more weakened and mortified;(d) and they more and more quickened and strengthened in all saving graces,(e) to the practice of true holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.(f)

(a) 1 Corinthians 6:11; Acts 20:32; Philippians 3:10; Romans 6:5, 6
(b) John 17:17; Ephesians 5:26; 2 Thessalonians 2:13
(c) Romans 6:6, 14
(d) Galatians 5:24; Romans 8:13
(e) Colossians 1:11; Ephesians 3:16-19
(f) 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14
