Law does not give life nor right standing. It is a gauge. How much am I looking to the gauge of the Law to determine my right standing? Where am I seeking help from the tutor and not Justifier and Author of Faith?
God, please help me to not rely on only performance. Let me recognize the purpose of the gauge ...to measure how far or fast, hot or cold...but to not use it as a substitute for a real relationship with You. You alone give life, You alone make right, You alone justify.
