A man’s perfection does not emanate from his modest life or upright conduct, but from the perfection of Jesus.
A man’s perfection is made possible by the blameless, perfect, and once and for all sacrifice of Jesus.
While a man is conscious of his imperfections, flaws and shortcoming; God is conscious of a believer who is perfect in Him.
Everything God sees in us (believers) is nothing but our perfection in Christ, and for a man to see his real self; he must see with the eyes of God and that can be made possible by seeing through the lens of the New Testament.
Hebrews 10: 14 [KJV] – For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.
Glory to God for this blessed reality! Our perfection is not temporary! It is forever!
The believer is perfect in God’s eyes because of the perfect offering of Jesus. We will no longer try to be perfect or make effort from our end to attain perfection. Perfection will not be attained by good deeds anymore; our perfection is a reality in Christ.
Perfection will not be attained in heaven, perfection is obtained in Christ.
Our perfection can only be seen and realized by constantly looking into the perfect law of liberty (James 1: 25); God’s word is a guide for the free man. The believer in Christ is a free man. He is a perfect man.
The Word shows the free born who he really is, what he has and how to live.
As a man gets deeper and conscious of the Word and also acquaint himself with the God’s realities about him; He gradually becomes skillful in the word of righteousness and get rooted in it.
