Yeah…What He Said

“Since faith embraces Christ as He is offered by the Father, and He is offered not only for justification, for forgiveness of sins and peace, but also for sanctification, as the Fountain of living waters, it is certain that no man will ever know Him aright without at the same time receiving the sanctification of the Spirit; or, to express the matter more plainly, faith consists in the knowledge of Christ; Christ cannot be known without the sanctification of His Spirit: therefore faith cannot possibly be disjoined from pious affection.” — John Calvin Institutes III.ii.8
