Who Is A Perfect Man?

Discussion in 'General Discussions' started by emekrus, Jun 11, 2015.

  1. “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is heaven is perfect”—Matthew 5:48

    From the above scripture, it is clear that God wants and demands perfection from all his servants and children alike. Because without it, we cannot have true fellowship or communion with him-both here on earth, and in the world to come.

    This particular position can be clearly seen from Psalms 24:3-5; it says: “Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of salvation.”

    Now with these points established, the first question that comes to mind is, can any man on earth, born of a woman, actually be perfect? The answer to this question is emphatic YES! If not, God would not have demanded it of us….

    God will not want us to be what he knows is impossible. He knows it is possible and that’s why He asked us to be perfect. Although, he also knows it is impossible with the ordinary man-without his help. And that is why when His disciples found themselves asking this same question in the book of Matthew 19: 25-26, Jesus gave them the right answer.

    Here is what the bible says in that Matthew 19:25-26; “When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, who then can be saved? But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, with men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible”

    So with the help of God through his word and his Holy Spirit in us, we can actually achieve divine standard perfection. Now the perfection here, is not actually the perfection of the flesh, but the perfection of the heart or the spirit…

    Who Then Is The Perfect Man?

    The perfect man is the man with a perfect heart before God. The perfect man is the man whose sins have been washed by the blood of Jesus. The perfect man, is the man whose heart has been cleansed by the word of God (John15:3). The perfect man is the man who has made personal commitment, or dedication to absolute obedience to the words and directions of God.

    The perfect man, is the man who walks in the Spirit. That is, according to the dictates of the Holy Spirit. The perfect man is the man with a peaceful, free-flowing relationship with God. Then along the line of the flesh, he always through the help of the Spirit, subject or subdue the works of the flesh (Romans 8:13).

    In other words, the perfect man is not the man who never makes mistake. But the one who quickly repents, asks and receives forgiveness from God, immediately he defaults.

    When he defaults, or his sins are revealed to him by the Holy Spirit (conviction), he doesn’t make up excuses. Rather, he admits immediately and quickly repents. The perfect man is the man who is constantly making genuine efforts (physical and spiritual) to conform to the words and ways of God. Instead of twisting the truth of the scriptures to suit his/her lifestyle or ways…

    God will have us come to perfection, because that’s the only way to his kingdom, both here on earth and in the world to come, life everlasting…

  2. A perfect hammer would make a poor screwdriver.

    I would make a poor pastor.

    I make a better me than anyone else.

    I am being perfected by our Lord.

  3. But is there a perfect man? May be what Lord is looking at is not someone who is perfect. But rather someone imperfect, who knows he cannot do anything about the imperfection and imputes the perfection of Jesus Christ on himself?
  4. Hmm, well its the ongoing process of sanctification. It takes time. We will get there in the end.
  5. Good point! God who is already perfect really is looking for us to be obedient to Him, and willing to allow Him to work through us.

  7. God takes who ever shows up and and can do more with little then we can with alot.
    None of us will ever be perfect BUT we can strive for this perfectness by allowing God to perfect us in every way each and every day. The more we are perfected in His likness or His perfectness the more we desire to be obedient unto His ways.

    Kind of like thy christians life cycle - (y)
    Blessings Brother
