Hopefully, when you look at these two diagrams below, you recognize salvation is what Jesus did and not about what you can do? God wants remorse from the heart, not some weird performance. Trying to act out your faith is only going to exhaust you and confuse others. Please pay attention to the fourth green box highlighted. You are justified is such an important statement because many are trying to overlook sinful behaviors and declare themselves right in the eyes of God. If you believe that God is going to accept your lifestyle, you are wrong. There is nothing Biblical about that claim. Read Psalm 51 over and over again, digesting what God’s word is saying. If you don’t get it, tell that to God and ask for His wisdom to understand. Only the Holy Spirit can move man’s, heart. Ask, Seek, Knock! Don’t stop ASKing till God answers.
