Perfection

Bible Verse of the Week

 
 
 
 
 
Matthew 7:48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
 
How can we follow Jesus’ command?  How can any human be perfect? We can’t.  This is an impossible standard.  The good news is that Jesus has met this standard on our behalf.
 
2 Corinthians 5:21 For God made him who had no sin to be sin for us that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
