Justification, Sanctification, and Moral Effort

There is a brand of "gospel-centeredness" that makes me nervous. I know that sounds bad, for who does not want to be gospel centered? There is a view in Evangelicalism that we grow in sanctification primarily through deepening our understanding of justification. As a Luther guy, I resonate with this and agree in part. But more than a Luther guy, I strive to be a New Testament guy, and I feel that this brand of gospel-centeredness does not due justice to the teaching of the New Testament on the necessity of moral instruction and moral effort. Generally speaking on this topic, I tend to side with Platt/Chan/Hood/DeYoung over against Horton/Tullian/Ortlund/Keller and their followers. Here are a round-up of links that I think are helpful on this topic:
