We Must Try and Fail So as to not be Deluded

If we don’t try hard and still fail, we might delude ourselves into thinking that we could obey God if we chose to make the effort.  Yet when we try hard and fail, and try hard and fail again, we truly learn to ascribe our entire salvation to the work of Christ alone.
