Obedience of a Christian Man

If you put any trust in your own deeds, or in the deeds of any other man, even of a saint, then you diminish the truth, mercy, and goodness of God. For if God looks to your works, or to the works of any other man, or to the goodness of the saint, then he does not do all things of pure mercy and of his goodness, and for the truth’s sake which he has sworn in Christ. Now Paul says, it is “not for the righteous deeds we did, but by his mercy he saved us.”
