Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin. Romans 3:20 (NIV)
If you adhere to the law of God will you be considered righteous in God’s sight? The law wakes us up to what is sin and the more we dig in to the law we realize we hate to do the things we do but keep on doing them. (Romans 7 is a good thought on this!)
Should we focus on trying to live the law out of gratitude for God? If we know we cannot 100% adhere to the law what should we do?
