A Trusting Obedience

True faith is "trust-grounded obedience".*   The elements of trust

and obedience are real, in-tandem, active:

 

Spirit-spurred outcropping of our confidence!

We obey I Am, Whom we know,

such knowledge so wonderful, it shows,

this gives us strength and rest

along the road of righteousness,

one not of our own, yet freely giv'n,

this garment of favor from the Lord.

 

Should mind condemn, trust-grounded obedience

dons Christ's helmet of salvation!

We think the thoughts once for all taught

by apostles and prophets for us,

these put the doubts to rest

along the road of righteousness,

one not of our own, yet freely giv'n,

unmerited favor of the Lord.
