Poly-Gratia Not just a Duplex

Many in the Reformed world love to speak of the duplex gratia, a term Calvin used to refer to the two graces in salvation of justification and sanctification. While I am in full agreement with everything Calvin meant by this phrase, I think that these two graces have frequently been emphasized to the neglect of the other graces in the ordo salutis. There are other important graces in salvation such as, but not limited to, adoption, regeneration and glorification. These graces are great blessing and the Christian should learn to reveal in these great gifts of God.

    And how often we neglect the more practical graces of motification and sanctification!
