'Do This and Live' vs 'Live and Do This?' Which?greenspun.com : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread
It is not by good works that we are justified, but if a man would continue to live an ungodly life, his faith will not justify him; for it is not the faith of God's elect; since such a faith is wrought by the Holy Spirit, and conforms men to the image of Christ. Are we then to be attentive to the precepts of Jesus and the Scriptures in order to be saved, or because we are saved?

Both. Jesus told us how to be saved, so we have to pay attention. We do it because we love Him.
