Be made perfect in God's way

Mark 2:17 ‘’on hearing this, Jesus said to them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

Are you waiting until you are perfect then start seeking God? Well, that looks like it’s going to take a very long time, and God isn’t busy searching for those who are perfect, and the sad thing is this, we can never attain perfection on own, yet this is the beauty of being a human(Ecclesiastes 7:20). Only Christ managed to live blameless in the whole of human history, and he did this so that you and I can be made perfect before God.

People who are healthy are less likely to go and see a doctor compared to those who are sick. It’s also true to those living in a wealthy world; some of them don’t think there is a need to seek God’s help; they’ve already come to perfection on their own. Everyone, of course, needs a doctor at one time or another, even if only for a physical examination.

What shines forth and reveals God in your life is not your relative consistency to an idea of what a saint should be, but your genuine, living relationship with Jesus Christ, and your unrestrained devotion to Him whether you are well or sick.

So many times we want to come to God only when we think that we have achieved perfection, however the problem is that we can never achieve perfection by ourselves, perfection comes from God. God isn’t looking for perfection—at least not our idea of perfection. God desires us to approach Him with our filthy hearts, He will wash us and make us clean. We need to be cleaned under His guidance not on our own terms.

When we are not worth it to the world, God sees the best in us. God is not seeking for your perfection; He is looking for the broken seeking perfection in Him. We will never be perfect by ourselves; we need God to bring out the best in us. If you think that God is looking for the perfect, then you’re wrong surely wrong on that case.

God will take you the way you are, whether rich or poor, whether weak or strong. When you feel lost, just come to His care, he will show you what perfection really means. No matter how much good you do, without His perfection you are nothing. No matter how many sacrifices you make, without Him you are nothing.

Christian perfection is not, and never can be, human perfection. Christian perfection is the perfection of a relationship with God that shows itself to be true even amid the seemingly unimportant aspects of human life

He gave His own son so that you can be made perfect without paying any price, without having to worry about your mistakes. God is seeking for the broken, to bring them to perfection. With Christ everything is already cleared. So don’t worry about how filthy you are, just come to Him as you are, He will make you perfect without paying any price or worry. God has done this freely. Come to God today before it’s too late.

JESUS came to heal the sick and that’s whether you were sick because you were living in sin or sick from a physical condition.  Whatever your condition is, JESUS is there for it no matter if you are rich or poor we all have a chance to be delivered from our problem that’s one thing JESUS does not discriminate.

God doesn’t expect us to be perfect. All He asks is that we try our best to love Him and others.When we do that, we can feel secure in His love, and that changes our whole outlook. We feel better about ourselves, and that helps us to see the best in others and to make the most of our circumstances. Life isn’t perfect, but that’s okay. God knew better.

God has worked into every human heart a deep desire for perfection. That desire is manifested in the admiration which all men have for excellence in the different objects or pursuits to which they attach value. In the believer who yields himself wholly to God, this desire fastens itself upon God's wonderful promises, and inspires a prayer like that of M'Cheyne: "Lord, make me as holy as a pardoned sinner can be made."

James 1:4 ‘’And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.’’

Matthew 5:48 ‘’You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.’’

Until next time,
Chaow Chaow!
