Obedience: A.W. Pink on Matthew 7:26

“But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.” Matthew 7:26

“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. Lord,

“Make me to go in the path of Thy commandments; for therein do I delight” (Psalm 119:35).”

~Arthur Pink, “The Sermon on the Mount”
