Perfection is In Christ Alone!

To all my peeps that like to hold grudges; take a look at The Message Bible’s paraphrase of Matthew 6:14 and Jesus said, “In prayer there is a connection between what God does and what you do. You can’t get forgiveness from God, for instance, without also forgiving others. If you refuse to do your part, you cut yourself off from God’s part.” Charles Stanley said, “If there are those we have not forgiven when we ourselves pray for forgiveness, then practically speaking we are asking God not to restore a right relationship with us after we sin. To emphasize the importance of restoring broken relationships with our brothers and sisters, Jesus states that asking for God’s forgiveness for one’s own sins, all the while withholding forgiveness from someone else, is not only bizarre but hypocritical.” Point being, it’s impossible to walk with God in true fellowship if we can’t walk in true fellowship with others and not to mention it’s just irresponsible to experience God’s forgiveness for yourself and not extend that same forgiveness to someone else! BTW, being the best you consist of forgiving others for committing the same sin you do. Our relationships grow stronger when both are willing to understand that we are all imperfect people living imperfect lives and we are all beings perfected in Christ (Phil 1:6).
