Lesson: #32: Motivation for serving God | Justification and Sanctification

Part of course: New City Catechism




Do you serve God because you fear what will happen if you don’t? Do you serve God because you are trying to win his approval? Or do you think that you already have God’s approval, so you don’t really need to try too hard? This is a tough issue which many people struggle with. Two theological words – justification and sanctification – help us to understand a right motivation for serving God.
