“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect” (Matt 5:48).
Happy Sunday to the great people of God in Christ all over the world.
Our call in Christ Jesus is a call to perfection. Perfection is the true essence of our God. His eyes are too pure to behold iniquities. His grace is all we need to live a righteous and victorious life in this evil generation.
According to our memory verse, Jesus declares that God expects all His children to be perfect. Indeed when God called Abraham, the first commandment giving to him was to walk in perfection with God:
“And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect” (Gen 17:1).
In the body of Christ today (the Church), I have been opportune to interact fairly regularly with Christian brothers and sisters, who think, talk and behave as if perfection is not a reality. Many will readily quote the saying: “To err is human”. However, this is not written anywhere in the Bible . God will not ask his children to be perfect if perfection is impossibility with man. God will not ask his children to be holy if holiness is not possible with man (Leviticus 11:44). Perfection is linked to holiness. Apostle Peter reiterated it a few times: “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy” (1Peter 1:15-16).
Perfection can be explained as a state of completeness and flawlessness. Perfection is a state of excellence. A state of purity, without mistake, error or fault. In other words, there should be no single fault, error or mistake in what is being examined. No wonder the blessings of Deuteronomy 28: 1-14, requires diligent obedience. Apostle James puts it succinctly: “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all” (James 2:10); James also enabled us to know that SIN is linked to knowledge: “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin” ( James 4:17).
There is a bible character called Daniel. The Scripture says when his enemies examined him, they could not find a single fault because of the excellent spirit in him, hence in their wickedness they set a trap for him, but fell into it themselves. The word of God says this of Daniel : “Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm” (Daniel 6:3). The Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus, that dwells in every true believer is a Spirit of excellence and perfection. There is no single error, mistake or fault in Him.
Oneness with God in Christ Jesus, the Word of God, is the only authentic platform for man’s holiness and perfection on earth.
Stay connected to JESUS, the Word . He is the epitome of perfection. Desire knowledge, wisdom and understanding.
