The Dual Giftings

February 1, 2011

When God designed the great and glorious work of recovering fallen man, and the saving of sinners, to the praise of the glory of his grace, he appointed, in his infinite wisdom, two great means thereof: The one was the giving his Son for them, and the other was the giving his Spirit to them.

And hereby was way made for the manifestation of the glory of the whole blessed Trinity; which is the utmost end of all the works of God.

— John Owen, quoted by Fred Sanders in

(Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2010), 127.
