Quote to Consider:
Westminster Confession, Chapter XVI:
"I. Good works are only such as God hath commanded in his holy word, and
not such as, without the warrant thereof, are devised by men out of
blind zeal, or upon any pretence of good intention.
II. These good works, done in obedience to God’s commandments, are the
fruits and evidences of a true and lively faith: and by them believers
manifest their thankfulness, strengthen their assurance, edify their
brethren, adorn the profession of the gospel, stop the mouths of the
adversaries, and glorify God, whose workmanship they are, created in
Christ Jesus thereunto; that, having their fruit unto holiness, they may
have the end eternal life.
III. Their ability to do good works is not at all of themselves, but
wholly from the Spirit of Christ. And that they may be enabled
thereunto, besides the graces they have already received, there is
required an actual influence of the same Holy Spirit to work in them to
will and to do of his good pleasure: yet are they not hereupon to grow
negligent, as if they were not bound to perform any duty unless upon a
special motion of the Spirit; but they ought to be diligent in stirring
up the grace of God that is in them.
IV. They who in their obedience attain to the greatest height which is
possible in this life, are so far from being able to supererogate, and
to do more than God requires, as that they fall short of much which in
duty they are bound to do."
