In the process of becoming more Christ-like, sanctification, what comes first—obedience or faith?

In the process of becoming more Christ-like, sanctification, what comes first—obedience or faith? To progress in our Christian life, obedience must be a result of faith. God does not ask obedience without conviction, without foundation on faith.

 

“In order to stand fast in the truth we need to have a living, active faith in God and his Word. Without such faith it is impossible to please God; for ‘whatsoever is not of faith is sin,’” SW March 24 1908. Obedience without faith is sin. (see Romans 14:23.)
