How can I live a holy life? It’s not easy. Ok that’s not even accurate. It’s IMPOSSIBLE. Anyone who takes an honest look at God’s law and walks away with any other idea than it’s IMPOSSIBLE, is either lying or they were looking at the wrong thing.
We are only dust and ashes before our Holy God. David knew that too well. In 2 Samuel 24 he repents of his sin, but the consequences are catastrophic.
