Why is God so perfect in what He gives and does for you?

  1. In all things, He is super; more than enough. Genesis 17:1
  2. He’s not just high, He is the most High. Psalm 91:1, Ecclesiastes 5:8
    He is so high, He decides who sits on the throne.
  3. God is not just mighty, He is the Almighty.
    Psalm 24:7-8, 91:1, Jeremiah 32:27
  4. He is not just pure, He is unchangeably pure. James 1:17

God requires that we be perfect.
If you want all these perfect gifts from God, you must be perfect. Luke 12:47-48

Good things come at a cost.
Perfect things cost perfectly.

Your Father is perfect and He expects you to be perfect. For to whom much is given, much is expected. Like Father, like son.

He expects His children to be like Him; to be holy because He is holy.
1 Peter 1:14-16

You are born of a perfect Father.
1 John 3:9

If anyone said it’s impossible to be perfect, they’re saying it is impossible to be more than conquerors.

The Holy Spirit is more than willing to give the grace to become perfect.

But you can’t access the help of the Holy Spirit if you’re not born again.

If you want to give your life to Jesus, bow your head and ask Him to save your soul and dwell in you.
