Word for Today: We are required to be perfect.
Ministry Of the Word(MOW) : True Spirituality (TS)
“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” (Genesis 17:1).
Good morning everyone. Blessed Sunday.
This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24).
Jesus Christ is our perfect gift from God and is an example of a perfect man who ever lived. Let’s emulate Him. Whenever you are challenged, remember Jesus.
How would Jesus react in such situation?
Perfection is an individual responsibility.
When God called Abraham, he was directed to pay attention to details and be perfect. Abraham walked perfectly with God ( Genesis 17:1), our memory verse, so we too can walk with God in perfection.
In Christ Jesus, our God is perfect and He expects His children to walk with Him in perfection. Many Christians are unable to pay attention to details. They treat mistakes and errors lightly. A single mistake may be bad enough to end a person’s life prematurely. The truth is that no man can be perfect by his own strength or works but by the grace of God though the Holy Spirit of God. The grace of God that came in the person of JESUS ( John 1:17). Jesus is our example of perfect gift from God.
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” ( James 1:17).
In Christ Jesus our God does not compromise on perfection. Jesus commanded all His children to be perfect, saying:
“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect” ( Matthew 5:48)
As you study the word of God, please learn to pay attention to details and be diligent. All the blessings of Deuteronomy 28:1-14, requires diligence and perfection. A single error could deprive you of God’s blessings.
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Stay connected to JESUS, the Word of God.
Be knowledgeable. Be wise. Be enlightened.
Connect, Change, and live (CCL).
Be Honest, Sincere Kind and Compassionate in your relationship with man and God.
“Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.” ( Ephesians 6:24).
Dear Father, we pray for everyone sincerely connected to your Word, that they may experience perfection through your word and that men may see their good works in Christ Jesus and glorify your holy name, in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Thank you Father, for Jesus our perfect gift from God.
