The Two-Fold Glory
There exist in God two different kinds of glory - on the one hand an intrinsic or essential glory, which is infinite, inalienable, incapable of either increase or diminution, inherent in the eternal essence of God - on the other hand, extrinsic or accidental glory, rendered to Him by creatures summoned out of nothingness by God Himself expressly for this purpose. 'The Lord hath all things for Himself.'
