Romans 2:13 and the Covenant of Works

In Romans 2:13, the Apostle Paul wrote, “For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified.”  How is this passage to be applied in the Christian life?  This old post from the Heidelblog has a very helpful resource list.  The lead article by Joshua Martin has been particularly helpful to me in understanding the context of the passage and how it is to be understood.
