“Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You!… Establish Your word to Your servant, who is devoted to fearing You…. Then I would not be ashamed when I look into all Your commandments…. Remember the word to Your servant, upon which You have caused me to hope…. I will run the course of Your commandments, for You shall enlarge my heart.” Psalm 119:11, 38, 6, 49, 32

The comforts of the gospel sweetly and powerfully urge us to obedience, and the terrors of the law warn us against resting on that obedience. Both, therefore, are needful.

Whoever despises or neglects obedience entertains a false notion of the gospel and is running headlong into licentiousness and ruin. And he who relies on his obedience to justify him defeats the design of the gospel and frustrates the grace of God, making it of no effect.

May the Lord lead and keep us in the right way. May He be our guide and our shield, our comforter, and our great reward. May we rest simply and alone on the finished work of Jesus for our acceptance with God and then, with great care and perseverance, attend to all the precepts of His holy Word, to His glory.

Before God, we will have to do with nothing but Christ; but before men, we will endeavor to live soberly, righteously, and godly, that by our good works, they may glorify our Father who is in Heaven.
