We try so hard to live a life of obedience in our own strength, but we can’t. We were born in sin, therefore, our nature is sin . . . first.
It is God who works in you, to make you perfect in everything you do, to do his will.
Surrender yourself to God, and let Him work in you what is pleasing to him.
Hebrews 13:20-21 (KJV) – now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well-pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen
