Grace upon Grace

from Spiritual Growth by A.W. Pink

The principle of grace or new nature which is bestowed on the saint is but a creature [a created thing], and though intrinsically holy it is entirely dependent upon its Author for strength and growth. And thus we must distinguish between the grace given at the time of our new birth and fresh supplies of grace for its invigoration and development.

As Peter expresses it "grace... be multiplied unto you," for nothing less than grace "multiplied" will enable any Christian to grow and thrive.
