the_o word_n here_o render_v gift_n do_v in_o its_o general_n sense_n signify_v any_o thing_n that_o god_n do_v gracious_o bestow_v upon_o man_n but_o in_o this_o place_n it_o signify_v that_o which_o we_o more_o peculiar_o call_v grace_n i._n e._n the_o sanctify_a gift_n of_o god_n and_o so_o the_o father_n interpret_v it_o or_o rather_o so_o our_o apostle_n interpret_v himself_o in_o the_o

confirm_v this_o proposition_n viz._n that_o the_o grace_n of_o god_n be_v absolute_o necessary_a towards_o the_o discharge_n of_o every_o man_n christian_a duty_n that_o there_o be_v a_o sanctify_a

principle_n be_v mo●e_n than_o all_o natural_a endowment_n or_o any_o improvement_n of_o nature_n that_o be_v mere_o human_a and_o therefore_o call_v the_o gift_n that_o it_o be_v more_o than_o the_o objective_a influence_n of_o all_o reveal_v truth_n or_o of_o all_o the_o outward_a act_n of_o providence_n and_o therefore_o call_v the_o gift_n within_o we_o that_o this_o principle_n be_v wrought_v

spirit_n in_o the_o scripture_n to_o bring_v down_o sublime_a truth_n to_o our_o understanding_n by_o familiar_a resemblance_n and_o to_o convey_v they_o more_o strong_o to_o our_o mind_n by_o the_o image_n of_o sensible_a thing_n 19_o our_o apostle_n have_v in_o two_o several_a place_n of_o his_o epistle_n represent_v this_o communication_n from_o christ_n to_o believer_n by_o the_o resemblance_n of_o those_o spirit_n and_o animal_n juice_n that_o be_v communicate_v from_o the_o the_o head_n to_o the_o several_a member_n of_o our_o natural_a body_n from_o which_o spirit_n every_o member_n derive_v its_o vigour_n and_o sensation_n and_o power_n to_o execute_v those_o function_n which_o be_v due_a to_o the_o common_a service_n insomuch_o that_o if_o this_o influence_n from_o
