“Life is about truth and obedience. We do not study our Bibles simply to fill our heads with information. We want to know the truth so we can then live out the truth. And then living out the truth by faith—not to gain God’s approve, but out of gratitude because we have his approval in Christ—we give him glory and fulfill our purposes here on earth. That’s what life is all about—living a life pleasing to the Lord as we obey the truth by his grace and through faith in Christ. That’s life.”
