After getting some backlash from family and friends about heeding the word of the Lord, Carrie responds in love and grace stressing the importance of obedience. Obedience to God’s ways and will for one’s life cannot earn salvation. Rather, we obey God’s commands and various invitations to love others because He first loved us..because of His grace. Loving Him and others is the fulfillment of His law. Love is obedience.
