There is a fear that is slavish and drives us away from God, and there is a fear that is sweet and draws us to God.
What’s at stake in fleeing covetousness and fighting for contentment in future grace is eternal life.
Whenever we sense the slightest rise of covetousness in our hearts, we must turn on it and fight it with all our might using the weapons of faith.
God is glorified when the power to be holy comes from humble faith in future grace.
The fight for good works is a fight to believe in future grace. Therefore, learning to fight for holiness by faith in future grace is supremely important.
The essence of faith is being satisfied with all that God is for us in Jesus. Faith embraces God — not just his promised gifts — as our treasure.
Grace is not simply the pardon of our sins; it is the power to press on in obedience. We trust in God’s ever-arriving gracious power to enable us to do what we should.
When we hear God’s promises and trust him with courage, fearing the reproach brought upon God by our unbelief, then he is greatly honored.
