Galatians 5:6 Parallel
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

5:6 For in Christ Jesus - According to the institution which he hath established, according to the tenor of the Christian covenant.

It is not enough for us to have been born again of Water and the Holy Ghost, and to have received the Gifts of the Spirit from time to time through the different means of grace. We are bidden "to stir up the gift that is in us;" we are told to "grow in grace." God has set us upon our feet in the right
