    "And the king said unto Araunah, Nay; but I will surely buy it of thee at a price: neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the LORD my God of that which doth cost me nothing." 2 Samuel 24:24 TRUE TRUE TRUE!!! No one is redeemed or can come at all to the Father except through the blood of Christ; but no one just slips in without doing righteousness. Its not a contest, but proof of grace wrought.

    Who, is "he" in the following verses, the Lord Jesus. "if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void". Having once violated any law we have no righteousness. Believers receive an imputed righteousness which was bought by Christ.By the grace of God the payment is put on our account,never earned.Our service to God is out of gratitude, with nothing to merit salvation.Heirs by grace only.
  • A disciple
    "LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?" When the rich young man came to Jesus asking what he must do to have eternal life, the Lord told him, You know the commandments...do these and you shall live." Afterwards He spoke directly to the young man's innermost thoughts, and his covetousness. What part of these things David mentions, are too hard for us to live by?
