“ ‘These good works, done in obedience to God’s commandments, are the fruits and evidences of a true and lively faith . . .’ (WCF 16.2). Notice here that good works are the ‘fruits and evidences’ of a ‘true and lively’ faith. Liveliness in faith is not the evidence, but rather is something that needs to be evidenced. Put another way, those who separate liveliness from the essence of saving life, or who in any way make that life merely evidence, are out of accord with the Confession.”
