Robert Traill (The Lord's Prayer, John 17:24), Works 2:42:

Christ gives his Spirit to his people, to prove his concern about their salvation. And we may allude to Isa. 5:4, What could have been done more? He covenanted with the Father from eternity about their salvation. He bought it for them, and them for it, in the fulness of time. The day of Christ’s redeeming his people was the flower of time, the greatest and noblest thing done since God set the clock of time a-going; for his glorious return is to be at the end of time. He turned the covenant of their salvation into a testament by his blood; and did in that testament leave all the grace and glory bought by his blood as a legacy to his people. He, when he had done this, went to heaven with his blood, Heb. 9:12, that it might speak before God, Heb. 12:24, for all blessings to his people. And till they get full possession of glory, he gives to them his Spirit.

Christians must realise and understand that while God gives to us new a new nature and that we wnat to obey and pleae Him now, apart from the enabling oftheHoly Spirit, we cannot do that in our own flesh....
