4 Dec

All then, that God works upon you savingly, from first to last, is a discovery of Christ, some way or other, in you. It is either the knowledge of his person, or it is a conformity to him, or it is dispositions suited to what you know of him; working upon us, and operations of God upon us suitable to what is in him; and this I call the sum or substance of our religion.

~Thomas Goodwin~




A Puritan Theology (Grand Rapids, MI; Reformation Heritage Books; 2012) p. 332.
Quoted from: Goodwin, Glory of the Gospel, in Works, 4:346.
