Legalism says God will love us if we change. The gospel says God will change us because He loves us. – Tullian Tchividjian

Know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ . (Galatians 2:16, NIV)

Your spiritual growth qualifies you for God’s grace and liberates you from the scourging effects of the law. God’s grace alone is sufficient for you!
