Believers obey Christ as the one by whom our *obedience* is accepted by God. Believers know all their duties are weak, imperfect and unable to abide in God’s presence. Therefore they look to Christ as the one who *bears the iniquity of their holy things*, who adds incense to their prayers, gathers out all the weeds from their duties and makes them acceptable to God.
— John Owen, Communion with God, 117
