"I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law,or by believing what you heard? Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh? Have you experienced so much in vain—if it really was in vain? So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard?"
We need God's Spirit, which we receive by faith. We are fools to try to push along without God's help. Our "righteous" works are like filthy rags without Christ at work in us. It is like spitting in the face of God - to refuse the precious soul of His only child who died for us, and is trying to help us every step of the way in this hard world. May we listen to Jesus! May we obey Him!
