Romans 3:24 Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. It’s totally impossible for any of you to be worthy of redemption, because in the eyes of the Lord, all your righteousness is as filthy rags, Isaiah 64:6.
The basis for self-righteousness has been removed. You receive redemption because of God’s divine favor, which is freely given to all who believe. God even gives you the type of faith needed to receive salvation, see Ephesians 2:8,9. He gives you the ability to live for Him, providing you depend on His Word and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
You are not to try to live a Christian life, but remember that the Holy Spirit enables you to accomplish this. The more you permeate your spirit with the Word of God, the easier it is to live for Him. Spend time in His Word today, asking Him to direct you to what to read. Next apply His word to your life, expecting Him to honor His promises.
