Rely on the Grace

If you allow the thought that you can rely on your own powers and proceed in that vein, then pride enters. You lose what you’ve gained and you need to start again from the beginning, to humble yourself, to see your weakness, your human sickness, and stop relying on yourself. You have to rely on the Grace of God if you want to keep on the path towards glorification.
