A lot of people (including Christians) practice a religion of one God as judge, a book full of rules, and human effort. God’s call is not about rule following or human effort but ONLY about the saving sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Through him we have continual access to what we need for a godly life regardless of our effort.
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. (2 Peter 1:3, 4 NIV)
Most will make new years resolutions and 92% will never archive them; we can’t even keep our own rules. The problem with sinners is we can’t get out of it on your own, we need God. Nobody loves you as much as God loves you and He sent His son to get us out of our sins. We are free through His effort, not our own.
