(62). Don’t Attempt to Keep the Law. (63). Trust in Jesus Christ to Take Away Your Sins. (64). Be Free Through Christ.
It’s an exercise in futility to even “attempt” to keep the law on our own! We are not capable! When Jesus said, “Be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Without His help, “we can do nothing”! But WITH His help, “we can do all things through Christ which strengthens us!”
In fact “His yoke is easy and His burden is Light”, if we are so yielded to Him and so “blended”, our will with His will, that we simply tell Him, “You drive!”, and allow Him to be our pilot and we, his co-pilot! Then, and only then, do we become “Channels Only”, and let God’s enablement to do ANYTHING He commands us to do!
This is not a “one time deal”. It’s daily. It’s hourly. It’s a continual process. Each time we deviate from God’s perfect will, several times a day, we, immediately, ask God for forgiveness an “get back on track”. This is TRUSTING God!
Thus, we “deny self”, which means we “DIE TO SELF”. We learn to live, totally, under the “leadership of the Holy Spirit. Really, we begin to let God live His life THROUGH us. Thus, when all is said and done, sinner and saint alike recognize that God receives the Glory for His behavioral patterns exhibited through our lives. He then is credited for the good that emanates from our “light that shines”!
