Doing what leads to life

Some people will tell you that it does not matter what you do, because salvation is entirely of God’s grace, yet, listen to God Himself as He spoke to Ezekiel,

“But if a man is just and does what is lawful and right; if he has not eaten on the mountains…” (Ezekiel 18:5–8), and God continued to list the good things that such a man does and the evil things he avoids, and then said, “‘If he has walked in My statutes and kept My judgments faithfully—he is just; he shall surely live!’ Says the Lord God” (Ezekiel 18:9).

There you have it, my friends, the Lord God says there are things that He wants us to do, and there are things that He does not want us to do.
Yes, we still have to trust His grace, but if we think that means we can disregard righteous living, then someone has deceived us.
