Romans 10:16, we read - But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” We can clearly see that we obey the gospel by choosing to believe the gospel. It's not about generating works of obedience to help you make that choice. God draws us (John 6:44) and enables us (John 6:65) then after that it's our choice to believe the gospel. (Romans 1:16; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4)Act of obeying?
Let me ask you, do you live in the Spirit or in the Flesh or both?
When you are in the flesh, what act of obedience did you do to believe?
When you are in the Spirit, does the Spirit lead you to be obedient and is this not an act of self will, but rather an act of God?
So please tell me which works of obedience did you generate to obtain faith in the flesh?
Surely you did not merely decide to believe. You said that you have to generate works of obedience that will help you to make a choice to be believe if you can be understood correctly.
