Intention of Obedience

Posted: February 23, 2010 in Confession, Discipleship

“The idea that you can trust Christ for the hereafter but have no intention to obey him now is an illusion generated by a widespread unbelieving ‘Christian culture.’ In fact, you can no more trust Jesus and not intend to obey him than you can trust your doctor and not intend to follow his or her advice.  If you don’t intend to follow the advice, you simply don’t trust the person.”  – Dallas Willard

    Sam,

    Did this come out of a book or just from a speech? It is a good quote.

    Grace and peace,

    Rex
