What grace wasn't for

Grace was never preached, that men should grow cold and indifferent in the practice of good works, but that, through the laying hold on Christ's righteousness, God might be glorified. Therefore study the exercise of faith so as you seclude not holiness; and study holiness so as you mar not the freedom of grace; and put these two together, which are the compend of the gospel, when suitably practiced.
