It’s Not About Perfection

It’s not about perfection. It’s about practice.

Some of you may know someone who always wants things perfect; someone who likes things in order and gets stressed out if they’re not.

Nobody’s perfect, and if you’re a Christian, you know that our perfection is only found in Jesus, and when He takes us home to live with Him one day, our lives will accomplish perfection.

Jesus doesn’t expect us to be the ‘perfect’ Christian. He asks that we obey Him and succumb to His will, daily. How do we do this? Practice. To be good at something, anything, it takes practice.

So what does this look like? It starts with reading God’s word, understanding life from God’s words. It means knowing God personally, intimately, and spending time with Him.

It also means carrying out His commands of loving one another, serving each other, giving your time and resources to the needy and to those who don’t know Jesus.

Practice makes perfect. Giving your all, every day to God’s will won’t make you perfect, but it will lead you to perfection in Christ.

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