Perfect Life; What Is It?

Updated on September 30, 2019

Thomas has travelled the world and seen and met with many people of various backgrounds. His motto is, "Travel is the best teacher".

One may have a house, a vehicle, money in the bank; is that a perfect life?

Another may be single, he has a good job, he travels whenever he can; is that a perfect life?

A woman is married, has children, she keeps a nice home; is this the Perfect life?


The perfect life is not what another perhaps deems the perfect life to be.

The perfect life can not be portrayed in an old black and white tv sitcom, even though it may seem perfect...it is just an act.


One may live in an old shack in some desert or jungle in a distant land, they have worn out clothes and no shoes, but they have a king as a brother and Lord, the one who heals, provides, protects and comforts...they have Jesus and yes, they believe they have the perfect life.


If you do not have Jesus as your savior, no matter how bloated your bank account, no matter how many homes and cars you own...without Jesus your perceived perfect life is nothing more than an empty carcass.


Certainly one can be financially wealthy, or own multiple homes and cars and be a Christian. It is how you live that matters. Are we helping those in need? Do you put others ahead of yourself?


You can have stuff and live according to Jesus’ will and word and have a perfect life.


The perfect life is not free of struggles or sadness or grief or heartache. Ones life becomes perfect when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, because He is perfect and through Him we have salvation and He helps us THROUGH the hard times and struggles etc., isn't that perfect?


Don’t compare your life to anyone else...ever. Look at your life and hold it up to God and see if you are living according to His will. None of us are perfect, but ask yourself, "are you moving forward and growing in Him?". Are you making the changes you need to make, repenting and turning from sin and worldly living? That is what matters, and again I say, perfection is found in Christ not in the world.


The things of the world will rot, rust and get moth eaten, they only last for a time. Things of God, the treasures in Heaven will last for eternity. What a perfect eternity we will have once we leave this earth and spend it with our Lord.

      Spot on! God is amazing. Living life In Him we have life, living life without Him there is no kife, we merely exsist.

      I have been a follower of Christ since 1990. I have had ups and downs, but because Jesus is my Lord and Savior I always knew He would get me through and that ine day He will take me jnto eternity with Him.

      When i lived withiut Him, my life was meanjngless and empty.

      I praise God for all He has done for me.

      Amen.

      I’ll never understand why anyone would choose to believe there is no God (once they have been exposed to His Word) and that when they die there will be no afterlife, their life will have had no meaning, as if they never existed. In death they gain absolutely nothing.

      Believe it or not, the God of the Bible is an explanation of everything and to choose to not believe in Him and the Gospel message if he doesn’t exist does no harm, you are no worse off! However choosing to reject God if he does exist will be much worse than if he doesn’t exist. Indescribably worse, why would anyone want to chance that?

      Thanks T: Exactly what i was trying to bring across, that perfection is not in the world or in worldly things but found in Christ and through Christ.

      As usual another of your thought provoking articles!

      The perfect life! WOW, I never thought of life possibly ever being perfect! Really, life is so unpredictable the thought that there could even be something like “the perfect life” (on earth) has never crossed my mind.

      After coming to Christ I realized perfection can never be found in our fallen world. Perfection on earth was lost the day Adam and Eve sinned.

      What does comfort me is knowing that God is perfect in every conceivable respect and that nothing could be more perfect than a life of eternity with him - that is the perfect life.
