2 Corinthians 3:18 NLT So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into his glorious image.

We all should want to improve in one or more areas of our lives. We may want to have a better attitude, be more patient, be more generous, or strengthen our relationship with God.

We don’t improve by keeping the law. We improve by understanding who we are in Christ. We improve by being led by the Spirit. We allow His Spirit to change us.

If we attempt to change by keeping the law, we’re setting ourselves up for failure. Galatians 3:11 says no one can be made right by keeping the law. We may keep one or a few laws for awhile, but we’ll ultimately miss the mark. And if we miss it in one point, we’re guilty of breaking all the laws (James 2:10).

The law was given to show us that we need a Savior. Through Him, the law has been fulfilled, we have been forgiven, and we’ve been given the Holy Spirit to help us improve to be more like Jesus. Stop trying to do it on your own. Allow the Spirit of God to change you from the inside out.
