Sibbes: Christ’s Fullness of the Spirit vs. Ours

“And therefore he must needs have the Spirit in greatest abundance. His fullness of the Spirit is as the fullness of the fountain; ours is but as the fullness of the cistern. He hath grace in the spring; we have it but in the conduit. His graces are primitive; ours derivative. We have nothing but what we have received. Therefore it is said, ‘He hath the oil of gladness poured upon him above his fellows,’ Ps. 45:7.” -Richard Sibbes, Glorious Freedom: The Excellency of Gospel above the Law
