Who Gets The Glory?
The grand controversy between corrupt nature and the Almighty is, who shall have the glory of salvation, God or the creature.
The pride of man says – “The glory of salvation is due to me, for I can save myself.”
But Jehovah takes the glory of salvation to Himself, and says, “I will have all the glory thereof: for it is by My sovereign and efficacious grace that men are saved.”
Thus pride is a principal cause of the enmity there is in the carnal mind against God; it is at the bottom of all the opposition made to those doctrines of Scripture which illustrate and advance the almighty power and free grace of God in the salvation of sinners.
