Have you ever met a person with a perfect house and perfect yard or maybe perfect wardrobe, perfect hair, and equally perfect career? Have you ever noticed that these people are constantly working on maintaining their perfection? If they have a perfect house today that is not cleaned, maintained, or updated, in 30 years it’s going to look like a house from, well, the 80s. The yard… grass grows, fast and a lot. Hair? It grows too, and grays and fades and gets dirty.
Some people see salvation in the same way. They think that God’s perfect plan to bring people to Himself has to be maintained through their own efforts, law-keeping, and general good behavior. The fact is, you can’t improve on or maintain the perfect gift of eternal life. Jesus’ sacrifice was perfect at Calvary and it is perfect today. It is complete and full, lacking nothing. His “perfect” is not like our perfect. It was finished when He said, “It is finished.”
Thank Jesus today for His absolutely perfect gift of salvation.
