Glory, Holiness and the Spirit

Holiness and love are not precursors of (conditions for) the glory of God; the glory of God implies the process of perfection that the Holy Spirit brings. God's glory brings holiness. Which begins to show the coincidence of the Holy Spirit and the glory of God.

Or as St. Basil put it: The Holy Spirit is God's glory.

Or, from a slightly different perspective, God's grace and God's glory imply each other.
