Gospel-obedience… not white-knuckled obedience

“Long-term, sustained, gospel-motivated obedience can only come from faith in what Jesus has already done, not fear of what we must do. To paraphrase Ray Ortlund, any obedience not grounded in or motivated by the gospel is unsustainable. No matter how hard you try, how “radical” you get, any engine smaller than the gospel that you’re depending on for power to obey will conk out in due time.” – from http://thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/tullian/2010/12/09/does-the-gospel-scare-you/ by Tullian Tchividjian
