Only choice: a response.

John Piper: “Obedience does not consist in paying God back and thus turning grace into a trade. Obedience comes from trusting in God for more grace — future grace — and thus magnifying the infinite resources of God’s love and power.”
Everywhere I turn at the moment I am being reminded that we need to be asking God for more of him, more of his grace.  Again and again I see how little I can do to influence my salvation.  Not even obedience measures up.  All we can do is respond... respond to God's love and his gift.  Our worship is a response, our obedience is a response (and also part of our worship).

All we can do is glorify God's name, through our words, actions and obedience - like Piper says, that then magnifies his name and the 'infinite resources' of his love.
