“No matter what experience I have had, or what be the character and strength of my faith, or how deep and steady be my assurance, or how eminent my gifts, unless any or all of these issue in a life of practical obedience to Christ they will avail nothing when death overtakes me. And that is no harsh verdict of ours, but the decision of the Son of God: “every one that heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man who built his house upon the sand.” Not that the Christian will “do” them perfectly—“For in many things we offend all” (James 3:2)—though he ought to, and must not excuse but rather mourn over and confess his failure. No, the obedience of the Christian is not a faultless one, yet it is real and actual. It is not flawless, yet it is sincere. It is the genuine desire, resolution and endeavor of the Christian to please Christ in all things, and it is his greatest grief when he displeases Him.”—A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

Taken from “The Sermon on the Mount” by A. W. Pink (1886–1952)
