It is not enough to just know the truth. If we are not transformed into a new person, then we miss the power of the Gospel. In Romans 2:13 Paul says, For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. Obeying the Law is not what saves us, but when we are truly changed by the power of God, we are made righteous and it reflects from everything we are.
