Do I truly believe in and live out God’s work in me? Am I allowing the one who started his work in my life to bring it about to its close or am I living as I did before I became a Christian and calling it God’s work?
Perhaps I am climbing the mountain that leads one out of sin into a pure Christ-like life under my own power?
If that is what I am doing it will never work. Can a car that needs four wheels stand on and operate on two wheels; God ask me?
God says to me I can do it for you so stop trying with your own efforts. Stop bearing false witness about me. In other words if you continue saying that I have no power to keep you from sinning I will not be able to lift you up.
