The Bible reminds us that if we try to become great on our own, we will not succeed. We need to remember to submit to God and His plan for each of us. When we rely on God and believe in God and the sacrifice of His Son, then we receive righteousness that we could never earn on our own and we become great in the Kingdom of God.
The next time you are thinking about how to become a better person, talk to God. Ask God to help you. Believe in Jesus and His sacrifice and you will find that God has more than enough righteousness for all believers!
Thank You for sending Your Son to save me from my sins. Help me to remember that only You can make me righteous and pure. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
