Obedience Is Necessary
For the Christian to obey God is normal. It is no extraordinary thing to do what your Lord commandsâ€”even to deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow Jesusâ€¦ daily. But obedience is more than to-be-expected: it is inevitable. Someone who is saved by grace through living faith in Jesus Christ will certainly obey God. In fact, disobedience points to the absence of true and saving faith. So, although obedience is not a prerequisite for salvation, it is a necessary fruit of salvation.
