Living clean isn’t “hard”-I never could understand why someone would say that, especially a Christian. Sinning is hard. The way of the transgressor is hard (Proverbs 13:15). The way of God is not hard. His yoke is easy, His burden is light (Matthew 11:30).
Never say, “I’m doing all right, but the Christian life is so difficult.” No! No, it is not difficult to live godly. It is not hard. Going the way of transgressors is hard. The way of Christ is easy.
Because His yoke is easy and His burden is light, you can find rest without shame, without guilt, and without condemnation. You will find peace that is perfect by yoking up with Christ. “But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof” (Romans 13:14).
