34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. (Matthew 12:34)
6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.(Mark 7:6)
Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:9—acknowledging his weakness—called unto Jesus for a fresh flow of Grace. Jesus\’ answer was profound. He said, \”My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. [Paul continued by saying:] Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.\”
Many who fail at receiving a law degree give up and end up as apostates: many lawyers who fail at living up to all the rules and regulations, give up and quit attending church or anything in relation to God.
We all, at a point in time, get tired of always falling back into sin and asking for forgiveness. We all reach that point when we wish we could just stop doing the things we do not want to do; we can only stop when we have His Grace not when we try hard to be the best lawyers.
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:2-9)
