Sunday Considerations: Obey in Christ

How Can I Obey in Christ?—Faith

Further, we must seek to know how, through Christ, we can walk in line with the gospel and render the obedience of faith. No obedience apart from faith is true obedience, and only by walking in line with the truth of the gospel do we perform the obedience of faith (Rom. 1:5, 16:26). Not only are we declared righteous by faith alone (justification), but we also grow in likeness to Christ by faith alone (sanctification). Thus, what every person needs from Scripture, believer and unbeliever, is the gospel. We cannot claim any of the promises of God apart from Christ and his gospel because there are no promises of God apart from Christ. Paul tells us, “All the promises of God find their Yes in him” (2 Cor. 1:20). We want to understand from the text how we can walk in line with the gospel through Christ.

Ask:

  • Why did Jesus have to be crucified and resurrected for this text to bring me joy?
  • How can I conduct my life in line with the gospel and render the obedience of faith?
  • How can I apply my life to the gospel truth of this text?
