The Key To Being PERFECT
The words of Jesus Christ are the words of eternal life to those who OBEY them. Jesus Christ commanded:"Be perfect like your Father in heaven is perfect."
How can we be perfect? How can we know what God requires of us? Jesus Christ gave us His commands and we must obey them. He also sent us the Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth. If we follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit and do what He tells us to do we will be perfect. We will DO the perfect will of God. If we follow our own mind, our own perceptions, our own insight and we walk very carefully then we can still go wrong, we can still stumble, but if we follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit we will not stumble, we will never be in darkness.
Most believers do not have the Holy Spirit. Most believers never received the Holy Spirit, they have no desire for the Holy Spirit. They do not know Jesus Christ. Most believers have Bibles and they belong to churches but they do not belong to Jesus because they do not have the Holy Spirit. They do not seek the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ promised the Holy Spirit to those who obey Him, those who repent and turn away from sin, from their own lusts and who earnestly seek to do the will of God, those who earnestly seek the kingdom of God, who press on in and who seek to be pleasing to Jesus, He gives the Holy Spirit in them to guide them to perfection. Without Jesus Christ we can do nothing. Without His Holy Spirit we will not find the WAY.
Have you received the Holy Spirit and do you follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit? Are you doing and living the perfect will of God? Are you PERFECT like Jesus commanded?
May Jesus bless you.
