Virtue Leads to Glory

Virtue leads to glory. First you cleanse the vessel, and then pour in wine. God does first cleanse us by grace, and then pour in the wine of glory; the silver link of grace draws the golden link of glory after it: indeed grace differs little from glory; grace is glory in the bud, and glory is grace in the flower. In short, glory is nothing else but grace commencing and taking its degrees. “Harmless as Doves” pgs. 166-167
