I mess up all the time. There’s no way I could do anything to be restored to a relationship with God except to have faith in Christ Jesus my Redeemer.
“For when I tried to keep the law, it condemned me. So I died to the law—I stopped trying to meet all its requirements—so that I might live for God. My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
Galatians 2:19-20 NLT
