Luke 5:8, Colossians 1:10-14

Luke 5:8
Leave me Lord, for I am a sinful man."

Yet, if You left us Lord what would happen to us. When we work in tandem with You there is fruit - but all our good works apart from You are not worth much if anything.

Colossians 1:10-14
What a beautiful prayer St. Paul makes in the following verses.

May your lifestyle be worthy of the Lord and completely pleasing to Him. May you bear fruit in every good work and grow in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all the strength God is able to give you according to His glorious power, so that you may have great endurance and perseverance in joy. Constantly give thanks to the Father who has empowered us to receive our share in the inheritance of the saints in His kingdom of light. He rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son. In Him we are redeemed and forgiven.
