We are not on a quest in life to become good. By His Spirit, Jesus makes us good (Galatians 5:22-23).
The path we are on is one of learning how to let that goodness influence the ways we respond to dangers and opportunities.
We are on a path of life, not to life:
You reveal the path of life to me;
in Your presence is abundant joy;
in Your right hand are eternal pleasures.
(Psalm 16:11 Holman Christian Standard Bible ®©)
