The Blessing of the Spirit

Galatians 3:14—“In order that the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”

Note 2 on receive says: “In the gospel we have received not only the blessing of forgiveness, washing, and cleansing; even more, we have received the greatest blessing, which is the Triune God—the Father, Son, and Spirit—as the processed, all-inclusive life-giving Spirit dwelling in us in a most subjective way for our enjoyment. Oh, what a blessing that we can enjoy such an all-inclusive One as our daily portion!”

Cross-reference “c” on receive directs us to the following verse:

Galatians 3:2: “This only I wish to learn from you, Did you receive the Spirit out of the works of law or out of the hearing of faith?”
