"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." 2 Timothy 3:16-17 KJV
As a born again Christian, you live by the Word and you are the offspring of the Word (James 1:18). According to the aforementioned scripture, when you look into the Word, you are corrected, taught and trained, so that you may live up to your calling in Christ and walk in the light of your completeness and perfection in Christ. You cannot be studying the Word of God and continue to say "no one is perfect" or "I'm not perfect," because the bible makes it clear that we are the offspring of the perfect Word of God. We are born of the incorruptible, perfect, complete Word of God. Therefore, as Christians, we are complete, perfect and incorruptible. Remember, the Word can only reproduce after its kind, you are thus the Word in motion.
"Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." Matthew 5:48 KJV
In the above scripture, Jesus was teaching people who were not born of the Word, yet he expected them to be perfect. If people who were not born again were expected to be perfect, how much more with you as a Christian. God has made you perfect and given you His Word so you may maintain that. There's no excuse for a Christian not to live a perfect life. For as Jesus is perfect, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17).
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17 KJV
When you hear a message about healing, faith for healing will come to you. In the same way, when you hear about being perfect and complete, faith for walking in the reality of these scriptures will come. Keep on listening to the messages about the Complete Man.
"And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all." Ephesians 1:22-23 KJV
According to the scripture above, in his body (Christ), lives all the fullness of God. As Christians, we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones (Ephesians 5:30). Therefore, the fullness of God is in us, and we are the fullness of God, because we are His body.
Furthermore, Jesus' will, desire or dream for His body is for it to be glorious, without spot/wrinkle, holy, blameless, or faultless (That He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things [that she might be holy and faultless]." Ephesians 5:27 AMP). Jesus' body (which is you) is perfect, flawless, faultless and without defects. That's a real definition of you.
"[That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ's own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him." Ephesians 4:13 AMPC
Once again, we learn of Jesus' desire for His body: to see it measuring up to His standard. Every Christian is designed to function in the Christ Standard, the God Class. We are the associates of the God kind. In Colossians 1:28, we learn that Jesus is coming back for the church (Christians) that is matured, fully grown, fully initiated, perfect and complete. Any Christian who does not understand this reality will not win souls effectively because all they would be trying to achieve is be "perfect and complete", trying to receive what they have, trying to become who they are already.
"Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;" Ephesians 5:19 KJV
Speak to yourself and affirm that you are perfect and complete, because Christ lives in you. Make those psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. God instructed Joshua to meditate on the Word day and night (Joshua 1:8). Be a Word-talking believer. Think about these scriptures and shout them. You are perfect and complete.
I am perfect and complete, just like Papa God is perfect and complete. In me lives all the fullness of God. I am flawless, faultless and without defects. Christ is my standard. Hallelujah.
