Being a tryhard is so exhausting

How foolish can you be? After starting your Christian lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort? Gal.3:3

Perfection is a by-product of grace which is imputed to us by Christ. We are perfected by His work of reconciliation rather than by the works of our hands or our “spiritual” habits. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t push through to respond to Christ when we don’t feel like it or when we are tempted, but may we seek to enjoy Spirit-led responses to His love and grace rather than exhausting ourselves with forced effort.

Lord, lead me to rely on what You’ve done for me rather than what I try to do for You.
