“Be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect” (Matthew 5:48).

 

I made a meal. I prayed a prayer. I read my Bible daily.

 

“Be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect” (Matthew 5:48).

 

I fought with my kids. I argued with my husband. I hated time spent with a co-worker.

 

“Be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect” (Matthew 5:48).

 

I sang a song. I went to church. I visited the elderly.

 

“Be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect” (Matthew 5:48).

 

My emotions surged. My thoughts went south. I spiraled downward into a dark place.

 

“Be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect” (Matthew 5:48).

 

I stopped. Stopped it all. Waited to listen. What was the key to perfection?

 

“Be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect” (Matthew 5:48).

 

How is my Father perfect?

 

My Father is perfect because of Who He is,

not because of what He does.

Perfection is His nature.

 

I am cleansed through His gift of faith (John 15:3; Ephesians 2:8).

 

I am perfect, because my Father in heaven is perfect.

 

I am set apart, once and for all, because He died (Hebrews 10:10).

 

I am perfect, because my Father in heaven is perfect.

 

I am righteous because of His obedience (Romans 5:19).

 

I am perfect, because my Father in heaven is perfect.

 

I am wise, righteous, sanctified, and redeemed because of His doing (1 Corinthians 1:30).

 

I am perfect, because my Father in heaven is perfect.

 

He speaks directly to me (John 8:47).

 

He teaches me as I rest in Him (1 John 2:27).

 

He is at peace with me (Romans 5:1).

 

He is praying for me (Romans 8:34).

 

The one who has the Son has the perfected Life (1 John 5:12).

I am perfect because of Who He is in me,

not because of what I do or don’t do.

Perfection is now in my nature,

because His spiritual sperm has made me a new creation

(1 John 3:9; 1 Corinthians 5:17).

 

God is good with me. I will be good with myself. “And you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).
