Legalism or the Pursuit of Holiness?

Is striving to live carefully so as to please the Lord in every aspect of your life and to obey everything he has commanded legalistic?

Or is that just basic, essential Christian living?

(See Col. 1:10; Matt.28:18ff.; 2 Cor. 7:1; Eph.5:15-17; Heb.12:14; 1 Jn.2:3-6)

Legalism is when you are trying to earn the Lord's favor. The pursuit of holiness, or as I like to call it, just plain obedience, is the natural outflow of the presence of the Holy Spirit in a believer's life. Big difference
