Our Perfection Is Of Him by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Our Perfection Is Of Him by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Be ye therefore perfect, even as your
Father which is in heaven is perfect
(Matthew 5:48).

You might have heard some people say, “No
one is perfect; so don’t say you’re perfect.”
Ask them why they say that, and you’d
discover it’s the result of their own experiences or other
people’s experiences. What does the Bible say? It says,
“Be ye perfect even as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
God will never ask us to do something He knows we
couldn’t do. If He demands perfection of us in the earth,
it means it’s possible.

When you study the Word, there’s no place that
suggests to us the impossibility of perfection. Everything
about God calls for perfection—excellence. The reason
most people don’t think perfection is possible is that
they don’t know what perfection is. Perfection is like
success, which can be measured at different stages
of your life, according to the set objectives, purpose,
and goal. Perfection is measured according to the light,
instruction or information that you have with respect to
the underlying objectives.

In our opening verse, the word “perfect” derives
from the Greek word “teleios” which is full-grown in
maturity, blameless, unspotted; wanting nothing; a
completeness. It refers to measuring your heart with the
heart of God; and the way to do this is through the
Word. This means that you do things as God would
have you do them; you let your heart be like God’s. You
think, love, and forgive as God does, because you have
His heart.

Furthermore, another reason many believe
perfection is unachievable is that they use their religious
minds to judge or measure what it is. Think about
it: if in Christ Jesus, we’ve been qualified to become
sharers and partakers of His life, His grace, and His
righteousness, it means our perfection is also of Him.
Jesus was the perfect One; the Bible says He obeyed
God even unto death. He qualified before God and
gave us His qualification.

So, our qualification for righteousness and
perfection is of Him. All you have to do to be perfect
in His sight is to accept and affirm His qualification.
His vicarious death was to make you perfect: present
you holy, unblameable and unreproveable in His sight
(Colossians 1:22). Now, live accordingly.

PRAYER
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for qualifying me
to be perfect, righteous, holy, unblameable and
unreproveable in your sight. I’m yielded to the Spirit
of perfection and excellence that’s at work in me.
Therefore, my words, thoughts, and actions are
detailed and flawless. I think, talk, and exude
excellence, to the glory and praise of your matchless
Name. Hallelujah!
