That's the opposite of what I want...

“What sort of teacher is grace? Grace does not lead us in some self-help course. On the contrary, grace leads us in Christ-dependence. It teaches us to abide in the Vine. Apart from Christ we can do nothing of our own accord. In Christ we can do all things according to His power that is at work within us.”— Vine Ripened Life

Exactly the opposite of what we want, right? We want Christ to empower us so that we can take the credit for our great holiness!

This gospel stuff is so backwards!
