Tuesday: What the Lord Asks — 1 Comment

  1. Deuteronomy 10:12-13 contains the language of the basic formula for salvation:

    1. Fear God = justification
    2. walk in His ways = sanctification

    This is also mirrored in the second commandment (showing mercy to thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments...)

    It is also seen in the First Angels message (Fear God, give glory to him...)

    It is also reflected in Eccl 12:13 (Fear God and keep His commandments,
    For this is man’s all.)

    These are "requirements" because this is how we are saved. It is through the combination of two things: faith and works (born of faith through love), justification and sanctification by which we are saved. Many other verses in the Bible speak of this formula. I have even written an article regarding this if any are interested.
