"I believe in the Holy Spirit..."Through faith in the Holy Spirit we are able to obtain the grace of Christ, which supplies us with innumerable benefits and rewards. Faith is the hand by which we embrace Christ as our Redeemer. It is this faith that justifies us.

Calvin fully explains the doctrine of justification by faith in this third book of the Institutes, and then he goes on to describe the liberty of the sons of God that we, as believers, are blessed to enjoy through grace and the work of the Holy Spirit.

Prayer enables us to exercise faith and procure daily blessings from God, if we have been favoured with the special grace of the Holy Spirit. This book concludes with a full discussion of the power of the Resurrection and our role in spiritual warfare.

"Calvin was equally great in intellect and character, lovely in social life, full of tender sympathy and faithfulness to friends, yielding and forgiving towards personal offenses, but inexorably severe when he saw the honour of God obstinately and malignantly attacked. He combined French fire and practical good sense with German depth and soberness" (Professor Dorner of Berlin)
