God’s clear demand is for our complete obedience in faith. We should go through fire and water to do what he says. So let us not fool ourselves! Our words and prayers, our churchgoing or attendance at meetings, our charity and philanthropy will show that our life is lived in God only when our faith is genuine enough to make us hand ourselves over to God in resolute obedience. Deeds, not words and feelings, are the test of our faith (Matt. 7:21).
