As our natural corruption was produced originally in the first Adam, and propagated from him to us,
So our new nature and holiness is first produced in Christ, and derived from Him to us, or, as it were, propagated.
SO THAT we are NOT at all to work together with Christ in making OR producing that holy frame in us,
BUT ONLY to take it to ourselves and use it in our holy practice, as made ready to our hands.
This MYSTERY is so great, that notwithstanding all the Light of the Gospel, we commonly and foolishly think that we must get an holy frame by producing it anew in ourselves, and by pursuing it and working it out of our own heart.
