Word for Today: Man can be Perfect.
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality(TS)
“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48 )
One of the biggest problems in the body of Christ today is that many Christians lack the concept of perfection. In our memory verse, Jesus Christ would not be telling His followers to be perfect if perfection was not possible with man. It’s SIN that has separated man from God.
A major hindrance to perfection is that many ‘born again’ Christians are not sanctified. The word of God sanctifies. The more of the word of God you sincerely have in your heart and in your spirit, the more sanctified you are. To be sanctified simply means to be thoroughly washed, cleaned up, be purified, be refined, be consecrated , set apart and declared holy. Only the truth in the word of God can truly sanctify a man.
We are serving a perfect God. There is no imperfections or blemishes with Him. We need to cleave to Him in total obedience to His words in order to understand His divine nature. As sons, we are a partaker of His divine nature . Do not remain in ignorance of this truth.
The Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit are perfectly united in oneness, hence we have only ONE LIVING God. Jesus prayed for us:
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth”( John 17:17)
Apostle Paul also prayed:
“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” ( 1 Thessalonians 5:23).
Have a blessed Sunday.
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
Be compassionate, merciful and kind to one another. Live in peace with one another. Love one another.
Thank you Jesus for a new day that the LORD has made.
Father, please, sanctify us by the truth in your word. Please, give us the grace of perfection in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
