Galatians 2:20 says, “It is no longer I that live, but Christ lives in me.”
Why would God place Christ inside of us only to be a spectator? Christ is in us to live through us. Do not strive to be good. Participate with God’s goodness already in you in Christ. Do not strive to be holy. Participate with God’s holiness already present within you in Christ. Do not strive to be loved. Participate with God’s love already within you in Christ. Romans 5:5 says the love of God has been shed abroad in our hearts, by the Holy Spirit. That means Christ AND His love are present in us. We don’t have to work for God’s love, we can work with it!
