MORE TO FOLLOW
Sam Ducanannan was a simple man with very few talents, but he had a great desire to do something for the Lord. So he made it his practice to cut out pictures from cards and magazines and to paste onto these pictures appropriate verses and poems. He would then give them as simple gifts to those whom he felt would be blessed by them.
One day, Sam came across a picture of Niagra Falls, but for a long time he could not find and appropriate poem for this picture. Then he heard a hymn and the moment he heard it, he knew he had found the poem for which he had looked so long.
Have you on the Lord believed? Still there more to follow.
Of His grace have you received? Still, there's more to follow.
Oh, the grace the Father shows, still there's more to follow.
Freely He His grace bestows, still there’s more to follow.
More and more and more and more, always more to follow;
Oh, the matchless, boundless love, still there's more to follow!
Underneath the picture of Niagra Falls, Sam wrote these lines and titled the picture with the word, ‘MORE TO FOLLOW’.
What better illustration could there be of the abundant supply of God’s grace through One man, the Second Adam, Jesus Christ.
Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.

God's grace as the avenue of salvation is sometimes seen as being in conflict with obedience of the believer as a requirement, without which salvation cannot be obtained. Which is it, or is it a combination? Can this dichotomy be satisfactorily resolved?

Obedience is inherit in the relationship of man (as a created being) with God, the Creator. The New Covenant does not do away with the need for obedience to God. In fact, it supply the strength to live that way. Heaven will be a place of obedience to God.
