What do you see when you hear this word "perfect" or what do imagine when you see this word "perfection"?
We as Christians believers in Jesus Christ the Son of God who with; finality, did give His life for us. So that we may have life and have it more abundantly. As believers our core understanding is that Christ became the propitiation of all mens sins. Which is; He took our place upon the cross He died so we might live, and live more abundantly than before.
Before, when we did not know Christ or know his voice. Before we understood that through the act of repentance and the gift of FAITH from God so that none could boast that they are better than any other believer anywhere. We may also understand that we are truly being perfected in Love so that we may shed the world and its ways of judgement and competition. That we may stand up and say with conviction, "Today is a good day to die". Because we live without regret.
I imagine that love is the key ingredient in the getting to go to heaven that when upon that final day we stand before Christ to be judged. And he finds us not wanting because we are full of the Love that he has for us and every person you can see. We are perfected in His Love we took the time to work everyday towards that perfection by not concentrating on others shortcomings. No not others, but our own-selves did we work on. We corrected our own behaviours and lead NOT by word, but by deed, by example.
We learned that loving our immediate family was important and we practiced making every single one of them more important than our own selves. For how could we love others if we did not love our own families? We encouraged each other with love as the motivating factor and gave until it hurt. But give we did each and everyday. And we saw some of our own brethren join us in our journey of being perfected in Love through Jesus Christ the Son of God. And God was pleased and the heavens rejoiced at our effort and perhaps one day we may stand before Christ perfected in the Love He has for all mankind and He will say enter into my rest you faithful servant.
