A.W. Pink Quote :

"And why call me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" 
Obedience to the Lord in life, not merely glowing words from the lips, is what Christ requires. What a searching and solemn word is that in James 1:22: Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves! 
There are many 'hearers' of the Word, regular hearers, reverent hearers, interested hearers; but alas, what they hear is not incorporated into the life: it does not regulate their way. And God says that they who are not doers of the Word are deceiving their own selves! 

- A.W. Pink.

Uplifting sentiment, I remind myself of this (almost) daily, but still fail. Thanks be to Christ that he died for me, and I don't have to rely on my own strength.
