Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away… 
(1 Cor. 13.8-10)
When that which is perfect has come… when love comes, what we’ve known in part is laid aside, what we’ve seen only dimly is replaced with seeing the full, clear picture face to face!

Love is what brings us to completeness, to perfection. Love is what opens our eyes and increases our understanding. As we grow in love, making it our constant practice, our knowledge which was once in part, comes to fullness—and the answers or direction we once struggled over begin flowing freely and easily to us.

What we have often not fully comprehended is that our lack of love is what has kept us from receiving the blessings we need and have been entitled to. Once love is activated in your life, virtually nothing can keep you back from all the goodness and blessing God has for you.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.
(Rom. 12.1-2)
Don’t be conformed to this world. When Jesus said, “if you love only those who love you, what good is that? Even sinners do that much”…. He was talking about the mindset of the world. You and i are not to live like the world lives. We have been called to live by a much higher standard.

We have been called to be holy and to be perfect. Both are obtained by love.
Being holy is a result of loving God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength –And being perfect is a result of us loving our neighbour as our self—not only those who love us, but also those who don’t.
Once we allow ourselves to live by those standards and not be conformed to the patterns of the world—this is when we will be able to prove (to know) what is God’s perfect will for our life—and live in it.

The beautiful thing about obeying God and what he has said, is that the rewards that result from our obedience are always so much greater than what we gave.

In being perfect as he is perfect (being compassionate as he is compassionate) we in turn reap perfection (or completeness) into our own life.

So the next time the myth of not being perfect arises, remember that through love you can be perfect and you can have God’s perfect will for your life.

Because God is perfect—then perfect  is not  impossible!
