Summary: in Matt 5:48 Jesus said: Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Many say this is not possible, the Bible repeatedly say it is very possible, But how? Here's How: Here is a bunch of verses stringed together to show you☺
A new commandment I write unto you thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and soul and with all thy might: and thy neighbour as thyself.and the second is like it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these, On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
This commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also, for 20 If a man say he is in the light and He love God and hateth his brother, he is a liar and in darkness even until now. He that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. Hereby perceive we the love of God. That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and that you have love for one another.
God is love, and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him, Herein is our love made perfect: when we love God, and keep his commandments17 If ye keep my commandments and ye shall abide in my love- He that saith he know Him and abideth in him and loveth not and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk as he walked, because as he is, so are we in this world. If ye love me, keep my commandments IF you love God, and keep his commandments the LOVE of GOD IS PERFECTED IN us
17 These things I command And this is his commandment: that ye love one another. let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth 21 18 My little children, be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. These things I have written that My joy may be in you, and remain in you and that your joy may be made full. 14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
I beseech you, therefore brethren, BY the MERCIES of GOD, that ye PRESENT (sign up to be used) your bodies a living sacrifice, (NOT a WORK BUT a SURRENDER) HOLY, ACCEPTABLE unto God, which is your reasonable service and be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind. be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
If you love one another and keepeth his word, God dwelleth in us, hereby know we that we are in him. Whosoever abideth in him is born of God and DOTH NOT COMMIT SIN; for HIS SEED REMAINETH IN HIM: and he CANNOT SIN, BECAUSE he IS BORN of GOD and the LOVE of GOD IS PERFECTED IN US (abiding is already perfected) - for whatsoever is born of God OVERCOMETH the world for greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God, Ye must be born again. Every one that loveth IS BORN of GOD, and KNOWETH GOD
We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; Neither can he sin18 but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 10 the God of grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
