March 3, 2024 • Perfect Obedience of Christ

This is what God requires of you:

You must be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect. Matthew 5:48


Jesus lived a perfectly obedient life under the 10 Commandments for us and our salvation. Everything the Law of God required of us He fulfilled. He was completely holy, and 100% pure in all things. He did all of this for us and in our place. This perfect and holy life is credited to you as righteousness; it is given to you as a gift of grace; it is why Jesus is the only Savior!

Jesus not only lived a perfect life for you; but He also died on the cross for you. The will of God the Father was that the Son would die for the sins of the world. The penalty of death that was over us was taken by Him.

To prove that all of this is true, and to give you absolute assurance in Jesus as your Savior, God the Father raised Him from the dead on the Third Day. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is God the Father confirming that Jesus is the Savior, that the Father has accepted His Son’s perfect life for us, and that our sins truly have been punished and paid for in the suffering and death of Christ on the cross.

What God requires of you is this:
That you must be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect.

Thanks be to God, that through the Lord Jesus Christ, you are perfect in God’s eyes and your sins have been paid for!
