While conversing with my wife Tina over lunch, she speaks of a grade of 99% given for a class assignment.by one of our son's teachers. My wife states "a 99, seriously, she couldn't give him a 100". Moreover Tina states with astonishment the reason our son gave for not receiving a 100 " My teacher says she doesn't give 100's due to no one is perfect"
"No one is perfect" ah, there's one that is perfect. If perfections meaning is: "without sin", then Jesus; "God, the fullness of the God head" (Colossians 2:9) is the perfect one (Hebrews 4:15), and in Him -you the born again believer- are made perfect also.
In modesty, seeing ourselves far from being perfect, we must understand the perfect sacrifice that Jesus has made for us.
The Bible tells us, “For by one offering He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified”. Did you get that? You have not only been sanctified, that is, made holy, by the same offering of His blood, you also have been perfected. You are both holy and perfect in God’s eyes!
19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. 21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled 22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight— 23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.
So instead of being conscious of your sins, which is to have an evil conscience (Hebrews 10:22), you can have a perfect conscience, a conscience that is free from the guilt and condemnation of sins (Romans 8:1-4)
So now walk in your perfection
From my heart to yours...
