We are all guilty of following man made ideas mate.

The differentiator is whether we're willing to consider this, admit it and change it.

It is hard. Everything worthwhile is. What makes it impossible for most people is trying to follow rules rather than the man, Jesus. And also thinking everything has to change at once. It's a journey.

Forget trying to live up to a standard. Jesus came excatly because that's impossible for us in our own strength. Focus on the God-man. Get to know Him - to know Him is to love Him. Then simply walk along following behind Him, which is easy when we love Him, and you will follow His commands, often without even consciously realising it.

And when you trip & stumble simply get up, focus on His back rather than whatever trip you and walk behind Him again...
