:: Perfection in Imperfection ::
Watching too much TV? Be careful you don't get too bowled over by the dream couples in movies! When that happens, you may forget that there is no perfect man.
If we were perfect, we wouldn't need to be refined by God! But as such, we are on earth to be perfected from our imperfections, to be purified from our impurities, and to be refined like gold.
Temptations. 1 Corin 10: 13 says that the Lord will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear, for the Lord will uphold us with his right hand and deliver us from our fears!! The upright will stand for the Lord is faithful to all who seek Him first.
Jesus was tempted so so many times. He was even tempted to disobey God and refuse the cup of death. Such a shock when we think that Jesus was supposedly perfect?! Well, He IS PERFECT. Jesus shows us that even Holy God the Son was faced with temptations all the time on earth!! Yet, Jesus was WITHOUT SIN.
Sin is the result of/is chosing and responding wrongly to temptations. Only Jesus could be without sin in the face of temptations. We have been destined to be LIKE Jesus, no less. We have the Holy Spirit which guides us to make Godly choices and overcome satan's deceptions!
There will be perfection in imperfection because we are destined for eternity with a perfect and Holy God!!!
