“I’ve written to warn you about those who are trying to deceive you. But they’re no match for what is embedded deeply within you – Christ’s anointing, no less! You don’t need any of their so-called teaching. Christ’s anointing teaches you the truth on everything you need to know about yourself and him, uncontaminated by a single lie. Live deeply in what you were taught.” -1 John 2:26-27
Every morning we wake up and say, “Lord, I cannot do this without You; more of you please,” we are that much closer to perfection. As we are changed from within, there is no chance of the world contaminating the teaching from the outside… the teaching remains pure and perfect, straight from the vine. This is not worldly perfection, but the surrender to His Perfect Will, Christ’s anointing — embedded deeply within us!
Perfection is the surrender to His Perfect Will, brought to Life in each of us by the power of the Holy Spirit – God’s Spirit in us. Even the surrender is sustained by His Spirit. Sweet Perfection. Holy Perfection.
