Terry Virgo on New Testament Exhortations

"Believers can keep what is commanded only through the work of the Spirit. We can’t say, ‘I’m under grace and don’t need commands and exhortations’. The Spirit-filled life isn’t quenched by commands; it’s compatible with them. There will come a time when all that defiles – the world, the flesh and the devil – will be destroyed. Then there will be no need for exhortation. But until perfection comes we’ll need it and mustn’t fear it or view it as legalism".
