“Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified” (Galatians 2:16).
I think there is something within each of us that pushes us to please God. But there is no work or deed that will justify us. No work that makes us righteous. We are justified by faith and the object of our faith is JESUS CHRIST. Believe in Him.
