Christ, The Life of Faith

We cannnot act spiritually till we begin to live spiritually: Therefore the spirit of life must first join himself to us, in his quickening work,…. which being done, we begin to act spiritually, by taking hold upon, or receiving Jesus Christ……..The soul is the life of the body, faith is the life of the soul, and Christ is the life of faith.

-John Flavel, Volume 2, The Works of John Flavel, Banner of Truth Trust
