Centrality of the Gospel
The religion in this world teaches us that if we try to be a good man or woman in our lives, pleasing to God, He will be pleased to grant us his salvation and give us the eternal life, which is what everyone is after. But what the bible is saying is that we obey because He has loved us and saved us. Obedience is a result of salvation, not as a means to obtain salvation. Salvation is only possible by faith in Christ’s substitution death on the cross for us, and his resurrection.
