Obedience is the manifestation of our faith. As we abide in Christ, he promises to abide in us. God takes great pleasure by working in and through us to produce fruit, and in turn we are blessed! What a comfort to know that we cannot work out our salvation by our own effort, but by God's enabling grace and power alone. He is our strength, our help and our salvation and will shine his light through those who trust and follow him with authentic and humble hearts.
