Gospel-Driven Quote of the Week

“It (i.e., union with Christ- J.F.) is the leading, comprehensive, fundamental privilege of believers, 1 Cor. iii. 23. ‘Ye are Christ’s.’ All their other privileges are derived from and grafted upon this, their justification, adoption, sanctification, and glorification. All these grow on this root; and where that is wanting, none of these can be. All acceptable obedience comes from the soul’s union with Christ, John xv. 4. Hence faith is the principal grace, as uniting us to Christ.”
Thomas Boston, Of Union With Christ
