Matthew 5:48 Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly father is perfect.
and yes i know i am not perfect.
i truly believe that if we couldn’t be perfect in the sight of our Heavenly Father, as our heavenly Father has told us to be,
then we would not have been told to do so,
but sense we have been told to do so i also believe it is posable,
if we will dedicate our lives to the Lord and strive to do what He has asked us to do no matter what it may be it is posable to do.
We have been given the Holy Spirit to lead us teach us and guide us throw this ife we have been given, the Holy Spirit whom Jesus sent to us, will be faithful to guide us to the fulfillment of the instructions of the Lord.
Problem: We have allowed the world to infiltrate so much of our lives; the American church today is run as a business and misses the simplicity of the word.
Jesus said to come to Him as a Child, a young child is cereus and wants to know and also wants to please, when they disobey they will work to gain back approval.
But as adults we except sin in to our lives and then justify it as if it were just a part of life we have no control over, and even create theories to back up and validate committing the sin.
Jesus said He is the way the truth and the life, and that no one will come to (approach, be in proximity) the Father but through Him.
Jesus is our way to the Father, when we sin if we have any desire to be perfect as our Heavenly Father is perfect.
1. Repent of our sins
2. Ask Jesus to forgive us of the sin
3. Turn from the sin and turn to Christ
Just like a baby chick will run under the wing of the mother hen we are to run to Jesus to be covered by His protection.
We have Jesus as our filter so the Father may look upon us
but if we are willfully sinning we are out from under the protection of Christ.
Christ shows us abundant grace but it is not greasy grace it does not allow us to willfully sin and turn our backs to the leading of His Holy Spirit.
Jesus was very clear about this
Matthew 7: 21- 24, 26 21
Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father
Many will say to me on that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name cast out demons, and in your name perform many miracles?
And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS,
Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine, and acts upon them, can be compared to a wise man,
And everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does not act upon them, will be like a foolish man,
the wise seek Him.
