We then have received liberty, being made Heirs of the covenant of Grace: but to what end? that we may do what we list, and walk as we please? Shall we freely sin, because we are under grace? S. Paul will take that off with a God forbid. Rom 6.15. for that were to turn the grace of God into wantonness, and to use our liberty, whereunto we are called, or rather to Abuse it for an occasion to the flesh Gal. 5.13.

We rather should walk as S. Paul exhorteth his Ephesians, cap. 4. v. 1. worthy of the vocation wherewith we are called: we are made the members of Christ, the adopted sons of God, therefore (to make good our calling) ought we to live as His children, His servants; not serving our selves in the flesh, but him in the spirit: for the immediate end of our conversion is and ought to be a regularity and reforming of our Conversation; and therefore in this respect tis likewise necessary that we should become new.

For the reference, see Henry Tozer on the end of our liberty in the covenant of grace.
