"Below his spirit, the spirit of every christian should should be like the spirit of his Father; every Father loves to see his spirit in his child, loves to see his image, not the image of his body only, to say, here is a child for all the world like the Father, but he hath the spirit of his Father too: a Father that is a man of spirit, loves to see his spirit in his child, rather than the feature of his body; Oh! the Lord that is our Father, loves to see his spirit in us..."
