Colossians 2:6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

We were saved by grace. We came helpless just as we were. We understood that He was loving us because He was good and that we did not deserve Him or His love.

Somehow after we get saved we begin to think that the Christian life depends on us. We think that if we do not live it out in our strength then God is not pleased with us.

The truth is taught here. Remember how you got saved then continue living that way. It is a life of complete dependence. It is simply trusting Him for saving you and living in and through you. As the Holy Spirit leads and guides you so live.

You will be able to live out who you are. You will live the Christian life but not in your power but His.

Trying to please God in the flesh is not only frustrating but it is impossible.
