How To Be Perfect
From Matthew 5:48 I want to share something with you. Initially from verse 44, Jesus was asking us to walk in love then in 45 he says: “so that you will be children of your father, which is in heaven…” Hmm…So, I want to ask a question… Is there anything you can do to be your father’s child? Funny question right….Even if I have a terrible behavior, it can’t change the fact that I’m my father’s child because he gave birth to me… Now even if my friend has the best character, can that make him my father’s child?
But Christ said, for us to be our own father’s child, we have to love… Love is our DNA… For a child to be his earthly’s father child he has to have his DNA. Likewise for us to be God’s children we have to possess his Divine Nature Alignment (DNA) – Love! Verse 46 shows us that we shouldn’t only love those that love us! So the only way to be perfect is Love, for our God is love. I Corinthians 13 speaks explicitly on how we are nothing without love.
All we need to be perfect as our father in heaven is to bear his DNA- love.
