"But we can go even further, and this is the final nail which should put out once and for ever that false antinomian idea, consider what is actually said in those noble verses in Hebrews 13:20-1:
'Now the God of peace, that brought up again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do His will' - notice - 'working in you that which is well-pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ.'
Here is the most glorious thing of all. In the new covenant of God, in Christ, through the Holy Spirit, has not only put the law in our minds and our hearts, He is even working in usa predisposition in favour of it, a desire to keep it, and He gives us power to do so."
- Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Great Doctrines of the Bible Volume 1 (p 357)

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
