How can I be perfect?

 “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matthew 5:48

            Perfection is impossible after one sin.  We all fall short after our first choice of disobedience.  However, we can restart and begin living a perfect life, making the best choices to not sin. 

            Also, Jesus died to be our advocate.  When we accept Jesus’ death on the cross for our sins, God no longer sees our imperfection but Jesus’ perfection.  That does not give us an excuse to hide behind, so we can engage in more imperfect behavior, but gives us hope that our imperfection will not keep us from a relationship with God.
