Believers Obey Christ Even Though They Know Their Labors Are Faulty at Best

Believers obey Christ as the one by whom our obedience is accepted by God.  Believers know all their duties are weak, imperfect and unable to abide in God’s presence.  Therefore they look to Christ as the one who bears the iniquity of their holy things, who adds license to their prayers, gathers out all the weeds from their duties and makes them acceptable to God.
