You’re Already Perfect!

“…but he, when he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God, from that time waiting until his enemies are made the footstool of his feet. For by one offering he has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.” Hebrews 10:12-14

Dear beloved, do you know that you’re already perfect? Because that’s how God sees you today!

Regardless of what you’ve done in the past, you’ve been washed clean by the Blood of Jesus.

Through His one sacrifice, you can now stand confidently in the presence of God. Righteous and perfect in His eyes.

“Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Isaiah 1:18

But if and when you do fall, remember, you’re falling inside of Grace. Like Noah and his family, even if strong waves rock the ark and knock them over, they’re still falling within the ark, safe from the drowning waves outside.

At this point, some people may think, “Doesn’t the thought that I’m already righteous and perfect through Jesus make me careless and more prone to sin?”

To answer that, imagine for a moment that you’re wearing a new, lovely white shirt. It’s beautifully made and gifted to you by someone you love dearly. Do you think you’d be careful not to dirty it?

Conversely, now imagine you’re like the prodigal son, covered in grime and dirt, literally living in a pigsty. Would you care less about keeping yourself clean?

You see, it’s a fallacy to think that when you know you’re perfect & righteous, you’d sin more. The reverse is actually true! When you know that you’ve been washed clean by the Blood of Jesus, when you know the suffering He had to go through, the sacrifice He had to make, in order to give you the gift of Grace, you’d be more empowered to live a righteous life.

So today, remember again what God has done for you. Remember you’re already righteous. Remember you’re already saved. Remember you’re already perfect.

Be Greatly Blessed!

References:

Hebrews 10:9-17

…then he has said, “Behold, I have come to do your will.” He takes away the first, that he may establish the second, by which will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Every priest indeed stands day by day serving and often offering the same sacrifices which can never take away sins, but he, when he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God, from that time waiting until his enemies are made the footstool of his feet. For by one offering he has perfected forever those who are being sanctified. The Holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after saying,

“This is the covenant that I will make with them:

‘After those days,’ says the Lord,
‘I will put my laws on their heart,
I will also write them on their mind;’ ”

then he says,
“I will remember their sins and their iniquities no more.”
