NO MORE STRIVING
In Christ there is no more uncertainty as to whether or not we are to strive to be perfect - to "go on to perfection".
But even if we were, how would does a Believer know exactly what to do to achieve it?
And, what's more, how would a Believer know when God granted His permission to "go on".
Would our heavenly Father put His Children in such uncertainty and confusion? Of course not!
Let us rejoice! Let us not fall into the religious striving the Galatians were tempted with:
"Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?” Galatians 3'3.
Of course not!
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for perfection and sanctification in Christ. Thank you, too, for the marvellous understandings that this wonderful letter conveys.
In Jesus' name. Amen.
