Where there is grace, there is glory

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.– Paul, Philippians 1:6, ESV

[W]here there is grace, there will be glory; grace is the beginning of glory, and glory the perfection of grace; this work of grace is an incorruptible seed, and which remains in the saints, and can never be lost; it is a principle of life, the root of which is hid in Christ, and that itself is maintained by him, and can never be destroyed by men or devils: and also from the concern God has in it, who is unchangeable in his nature, purposes, promises, gifts, and calling; who is a rock, and his work is perfect sooner or later; who is faithful, and will never forsake the work of his hands, and has power to accomplish it; and who has promised his people, that they shall grow stronger and stronger, that they shall not depart from him, and he will never leave them. – John Gill, John Gill’s Exposition of the Bible (source)

One thought on “Where there is grace, there is glory

  1. “grace is the beginning of glory, and glory the perfection of grace;”

    How cool is that?!?! I never thought of grace and glory being connected before.

    Thanks Jess!
