Perfection

God does not tempt us

What Christ achieved is what we will achieve

Oneness with God

He demonstrated to us as an example

And those who follow him will meet him

 

He does not set perfection before us

Not to be achieved

As a temptation that we cannot have, teasing us

But sets perfection before us

And reaches out to meet us in that state

He becomes like us so we can become like him

 

James 1:4

“But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”

I John 4:12

“…his love is perfected in us.”

I John 4:16-18

…God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him.  Herein is our love made perfect.. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear…”

St. Luke 6:40

“The disciple is not above his master: but everyone that is perfect, shall be as his master.”
