Duties of grace and divine work of grace

“The demands or duties of grace are co-exten­sive with the divine work of grace. The pattern of regeneration-faith, in which the Spirit inaugu­rates us into union with Christ, is continued throughout the whole of life. God is sanctifying the whole person, body, soul, and spirit (1 Thes. 5:23); the believer must therefore sanctify the whole person, body, soul, and spirit. God is working in believers both to will and to do of his good pleasure; be­lievers are, therefore, to work out the significance of their union with Chris­tian death to sin and life to God, in lives of uni­versal obedience obedi­ence and consecration (cf. Phil. 2:12-13).” (Sin­clair Ferguson, The Holy Spirit , p. 151).
