Being perfect?

Quoting the scriptures is not hard to do, but LIVING the scriptures is another story. 

Some people can say who they are in Christ, even state they are as Christ is. Just by looking at Jesus Christ as our example is easy to do. But doing what Christ did should become visible in the lives of those who claim the above. If not... it are words spoken or written in vain.
When one can overcome calamities through the power of the Holy Spirit and do the things Jesus did, words do not need to be used because ACTIONS will speak loudly for themselves.

Jesus says: "Not they that say LORD, LORD, but they who do the will of my Father..."
It is sad to learn that such people exist and present such boasting words.

Some may think they do not have to ask forgiveness anymore either, because they have been forgiven once already, as they claim.
Certainly, we who have asked forgiveness for past trespasses will be forgiven... but what about the days after? We should be cleansed daily. Are such not taking a bath anymore, because they were washed at one time already? What a nonsense.  Are they walking in PERFECTION ever after? We know better. Such people are fooling themselves.

My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:  1 John 2:2
We are not sinners anymore after conversion, since we have become children of God. But we still may walk in disobedience from time to time, or trip over sin, wrong thoughts, getting angry etc. We have the battle between the spirit and the flesh, and fail at times. Therefore we need to be cleansed by the Blood of the Lord as long as we are here on this doomed globe and have not received a glorified body.

But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the Blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:7-9
I think very HIGH of Christ who lives within me, but not too high of myself since without Christ I am nothing. Human thoughts may start to wander and thinking about wrong or sinful ideas. Am I correct? Or are you one of those who walk “perfect” all the time?  Just think...

Christ should be glorified... not man, no matter how much good one may do.
Go by the word of God and allow Him to guide you in all your ways. He is the purpose for living, without Him we will be "losers". We are created for His pleasure, according to His word. So rejoice and let the world go by. AMEN!!

For His Glory,
Minister Dr. Trudy Veerman
