Obeying God’s laws will not save us or gain the favor of God. Rather, we can demonstrate our trust in God by following His ways. The important word is trust. In all relationships, trust is an essential part of relationship. It is trusting in Him that leads to everlasting life. Following God’s ways is not a requirement, but instead a natural response to His faithful love for us. What is your heart’s desire?
LORD, we show our trust in you by obeying your laws; our heart’s desire is to glorify your name.
~ Isaiah 26:8
