KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 5:48 KJV “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”
The Lord Jesus after talking about various topics added that we must be perfect. He said we must be perfect even as our Father in heaven is perfect. Would God ask us to do something we cannot do? Every instruction of God or command has within the word the power to fulfill the instruction. 1John 5:3 KJV” For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.” It is to our good to accept this instruction to be perfect. All things are possible to him that believes Mark 9:23
HOW can one lead a perfect life.? .
1. Accept the word with all your heart, and say, I will be perfect just as my father is perfect. Whenever you believe the word you receive a transforming power to become what that word says.. Rom 12:2a KJV” And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,…… “.This verse says it all. Perfection is beyond human achievement. It takes the supernatural power of God working through a man, to make him perfect. This takes place as you yield to every instruction of scripture. Within every instruction lies the ability for its fulfillment. Commitment to the word is the vital step that releases the miracle power within that word of God.
2. Love the Lord with all your heart. Imperfection is always a function fear. 1Jn 4:18 KJV” There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love..” God values men who love Him very highly. The Lord rightly says in 1 Corinth 8:2&3. If a man says he has knowledge then he knows nothing at all , but the man who loves God, God says he knows him. Daniel was described as a perfect man because he loved the Lord. (Daniel 6:3).A lover will do anything to please his Lord even at the peril of his life.
3. One must know exactly what the Lord says. When a man is rightly instructed in the word, he would know what is expected, to be done. Rom 10:2 KJV “For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.”
These people could not please God because they had no proper knowledge of God’s right ways. Get to know the truth, and it will make you free.
I am born of the Spirit of God. I have the ability of the Spirit within me. I manifest the life of the Spirit as I yield to Him. The Spirit of God is the agent of perfection.
Galatians 5:16 KJV” This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh”.
Mark 9:23 “KJV Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”
