“To escape the error of salvation by works we have fallen into the opposite error of salvation without obedience” ~ A.W. Tozer
Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for hit is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure
14 Do all things without grumbling or disputing, 15 that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16 holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain. 17 Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all. 18 Likewise you also should be glad and rejoice with me.
Our lives of obedience are to reflect the way home to the home of the only hope for this world. Our obedience is a daily thing not when we feel like it otherwise the light we are suppose to shine out will be dull and no different to the darkness in this world.
“God does not need your good works, but your neighbor does.” Martin Luther
Still been thinking about this.
Grace calls as into obedience to do the good works God has prepared for us to do.
He answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.”
You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
