Love & Obedience
from Spurgeon's, "LOVE'S LOGIC"
A man who is not obedient to God's commandments is evidently
not a true believer; for, although good works do not save us, yet,
being saved, believers are sure to produce good works.
Though the 'fruit' be not the 'root' of the tree, yet a well
rooted tree will, in its season, bring forth its fruits.
So, though the keeping of the commandments does not
make me a child of God, yet, being a child of God, I shall
be obedient to my heavenly Father.
