No human being can please God by self-improvement.

“Convinced that no human being can please God by self-improvement, we believed in Jesus as The Messiah so we might be set right before God by trusting in The Messiah. Not by trying to be good, The Messiah, not trying to be good.”

 
Galatians 2: 16 (The Message)
 
How clearer can Paul be?
 
Why oh why oh why do people still teach we have to strive, struggle to be good? That living up to our righteousness is ‘hard work’ ?
 
It’s not hard work. 
 
It’s His righteousness, not ours.
 
It’s out of our hands.
 
We are free!
