The only principle of evangelical obedience is sacred truth and our faith therein.  That, alone, is “the doctrine which is according to godliness” (1 Timothy 6.3) and all acceptable obedience unto God is “the obedience of faith” (Romans 6.26).  Whatever men do or pretend unto in a way of duty unto Him whereof the truth of the gospel is not the spring and measure, which is not guided and animated thereby, is not what God, at present, requireth, not what He will eternally reward. – John Owen (1616-1683)
