Without Grace, Nothing Good Can Be Done

Let us consider what regard we ought to have to our own duty and to the grace of God.  Some would separate these things as inconsistent.  If holiness be out duty and God’s grace are nowhere opposed in the matter of sanctification; for the one absolutely supports the other.  We cannot perform our duty without the grace of God; nor does God give grace for any other purpose than that we may perform our duty.
