Thankfulness for grace will set you a-work for God rather than a legal conscience. You will do what you do for God for love to him rather than fear. Duties are a thank-offering rather than a sin-offer ing, and will not look upon God's rewards as a debt, but as a further act of his grace ; blessing God for Jesus Christ, rather than ascribing anything to yourselves ; in short, imploring pardon for our best duties, rather than boast of them. This is the true gospel spirit, and which only declareth that you find a loss rather than a gain in all those empty formal services and that external partial obedience that keep you from Christ. Christ is precious to you that believe. Thomas Manton....a sermon on Phil3 Are there any who are saved without fruit of the Spirit being evidenced in the life? This is not speaking of Elect Infants and children dying in infancy, or mentally damaged persons. This is about all others who profess faith.
