Our Substitute

Jesus not only died a substitutionary death for us - absorbing the wrath of God on our behalf - He also lived a substitutionary life for us. His righteous life and it's reward are imputed to us. This means that we are not only saved by grace - we are also kept by grace. 
Go ahead and forget about yourself. It's ALL Him!

The more you keep your focus off of you and how you are progressing and the more you keep your focus on Jesus and His finished work on your behalf the better. 

Don't worry you are not going to drift into sinful living with your eyes fixed on Jesus. If you are really honest, all of your diligent efforts at law keeping have not produced a lot of life change anyway.

His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 2 Peter 1:3
