Manton: the beginning of glory

Sunday, July 25, 2021
    Feast of James the Apostle
    And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
    —2 Corinthians 3:18 (NIV)
    Grace is the beginning of glory, and glory is but grace perfected.
    ... Thomas Manton (1620-1677), from “Sermons on Hebrews 11” in The Complete Works of Thomas Manton, v. 13, London: James Nisbet & Co., 1873, serm. i, p. 331 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 3:18; John 1:14; 2 Cor. 4:15; Heb. 11:1
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, we are swallowed up in Your glory.
