The Perfect Life

What is a perfect life? How woefully short I come because when I try to process living the perfect life, I find myself considering how I would live my life unlike the way you live yours.

When we look to scripture, we find two aspects of the perfect life. The first is found in the life of the perfect God-man Jesus who lived in time and space, keeping every command of God. Boggles the mind, but He lived the perfect life.

The second description of the perfect life begins with our Creator who is our Savior. “You said that already.” No, I said, “begins.”

There is one God, the Father, of whom are all things and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.” (1 Corinthians 8:6).

He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.” (Ephesians 1:4-5)

The perfect life is His, shared.
