… you must put your trust in Christ and nothing else. You say, “But what if I clean up my act?” No, there are people who live better by accident than you do on purpose. Our distinction as Christians is that we have placed our trust in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and nothing else. [From the Word For You Today Devotional]
I just love that line, there are people who live better by accident than you do on purpose. How true. How sobering. How glorious that we are saved by faith and not by anything in us!!
