Perfect Life; What Is It?
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.
