>“As you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, so walk (live) in Him.” Too often I fail because I forget that the gospel is not “simply” how we get saved/converted/born again; but it is how we are to live 24/7/365.
Recommend you slowly read this:
“At the root of all our disobedience are particular ways in which we continue to seek control of our lives through systems of works-righteousness. The way to progress as a Christian is to continually repent and uproot these systems the same way we become Christians, namely by the vivid depiction (and re-depiction) of Christ’s saving work for us, and the abandoning of self-trusting efforts to complete ourselves. We must go back again and again to the gospel of Christ-crucified, so that our hearts are more deeply gripped by the reality of what he did and who we are in him.”
– Timothy Keller
