Perfection, is a difficult thing to achieve, for those who even try, but somehow, Jesus managed to pull it off. His accomplishment has always intrigued me. Many times I have wondered, If Jesus can do it, then why can’t I? I now have my answer.
As I have studied the life and ministry of Christ, there are some consistent points he focused on:
- Jesus was in constant communication with his Father, who just so happened to be God.
- Jesus kept the will of his Father in the front of his mind.
- Jesus only did what he had seen his Father do.
This kind of focused life got Jesus killed.
Ouch! But God knew that would happen and was used by God to have a perfect sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins. The very goal of sending your only Son to earth.
So if I achieved perfection, even for an hour, or a day, would it kill me? No, but would it kill me to try? If I prayed more I would know every day the will of God, and hopefully do what I knew my heavenly Father would do in all situations and in all conversations. Dying to myself won’t forgive anyone of sin, but perhaps, it might lead others to Jesus, who can.
