Cribbed from someone else's wisdom in a forum discussion:

"we obey because we are saved, not saved because we obey."

I like that. A very good reminder for those of us who have a tendency to slide toward legalism.

Further to that, I suppose, is, we obey because we love and are loved, not out of fear or guilt.

Makes me thing of this:

"No one takes [my life] from me, but I lay it down of my own accord." John 10:8
