Grace, [like every] other institution, has its own means of development & enjoyment. Hence the means of each & every grace promised & vouchsafed to us are a portion of that Grace itself. The means & the ends are equally the Grace of God. In other words, Faith is a Grace, Repentance is a Grace, Baptism is a Grace, and Regeneration is a Grace. Therefore, our whole salvation is of Grace. There is no human merit in Faith, in Repentance, in Baptism, in Regeneration. They are one & all Divinely bestowed upon man.
