Relation of Faith & Works

“This is the true order of Christian pedagogy— ‘trust in His redeeming blood’ first, and then ‘try his works to do.’ Disaster always follows when the order is reversed.”
-Gresham Machen

The life of obedience to God is only possible out of our gratitude for the free gift of grace we have received through faith in Christ. The law drives us to seek refuge in Christ. It is only through faith in Christ that we can have any hope to obey God.
