PERFECTION Required for Salvation
When you preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and His requirements for salvation then people will often ask you whether you are sinless, or whether you are perfect.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is not about His followers. It is about His requirements for salvation. If we do not live up to His requirements and if we do not obey Him we will not enter His kingdom.
We preach the gospel of Jesus Christ because we have come to know Him and we know His requirements. We know that only those who obey Him and who endure until the very end will enter His kingdom.
He said:"Be perfect like your father in heaven is perfect." Those are His words. The unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God. People tell you that there are no righteous men on earth. That is immaterial, that does not matter. What matters is: Do we comply with with the words of Jesus Christ? Does He approve of us? The words of Jesus are recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Those are the words that will judge each and every one of us.
Do we live up to those words? Those who disobey Jesus Christ are already judged. Are we trying to refute Jesus or are we following Him
Only those who comply with His words, His commands, only they are suitable for the kingdom of heaven. Do we comply with the words of Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you?
