Do you know that God only requires you to do ONE thing to be PERFECT?
To be perfect means God considers you sinless. It means God sees you as someone who has never done any bad thing or ever had a bad thought. To be perfect means God sees you the same way he sees Jesus. Jesus never committed a single sin and in him there is no sin. [1 Peter 2:22, 1 John 3:5 ]
To be perfect, you need to be exactly like Jesus. You need to be sinless from the day you were born to the end of your life. Does that sound impossible? It is!
Even though it’s impossible for you to be perfect by doing good, I have wonderful news. Perfection can be received as a GIFT from God!
That’s right! The one thing you must do to be perfect is RECEIVE! Don’t try to be perfect and struggle to do good, but RECEIVE perfection from God. And because Jesus is the Perfect One, receive Jesus and you become perfect in God’s eyes!
The bible teaches us some very important things about this:
For it is by grace that we are saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the GIFT of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. [Ephesians 2:8-9 ]
God made JESUS who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. [2 Corinthians 5:21]
By one sacrifice Jesus has made PERFECT FOREVER those who are being made holy. [Hebrews 10:14]
For if, by the trespass of the one man Adam, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who RECEIVE God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ! [Romans 5:17]
