"God is glorified by the obedience of the saints and we are able to glorify God because He has given us His grace. It is this simple. There will be many who try to subvert believers into believing that obedience is not the result of God’s grace. Nevertheless, once we have tasted of the goodness and mercy of God, through His grace, we become convinced that obedience to God is the result of fully understanding Gods grace."

"This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men. But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain." Titus 3:8, 9
