Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
He will bring out your righteousness as the light,
And your judgment as the noonday.
Psalm 37:5-6

Following God doesn’t make you a good person; God makes good people out of His followers.

If you believe, you’ll do what he asks and when you do that, you’ll be living up to the righteous status he grants you as a follower. In this way, no one is good on their own but we are all good enough, thanks to the grace of God.

We don’t have anything to brag about if we are mere followers of Jesus, but if we are humble and we truly learn from and commit to the way of Jesus, we can count on God to make us righteous.
