The Wardrobe of Grace

"All spiritual good things are purchased by the blood of Christ for them; as Justification, which comprises remission of sins and acceptance of our persons by God: Rom. 3:24 "Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ." Sanctification is also purchased for them; yea both initial and progressive sanctification: for of "God, he is made unto us not only wisdom and righteousness but sanctification also, 1 Cor. 1:30. These two, viz. our justification and our sanctification, are two of the most rich and shining robes in the wardrobes of free grace. How glorious and lovely do they render the soul that wears them!" --John Flavel vol 2, p.192.
