“Believing God’s many promises, and loving God and others and yourself, and obeying God’s will as perceived in His Word and in the conscience and intuition of your spirit, makes zero difference to the salvation of those who have believed in Christ as Savior.

But these things make a huge difference to your rewards in Heaven, to being pleasing to Your heavenly Father who loves you, to living out your holy and resurrected identity in Christ, to being and acting loving to others and to yourself, to experiencing close fellowship and love and joy and peace between God’s Holy Spirit and yours, to communing with God in your soul, and to practical sanctification by grace through faith in Christ.”
