Why is God asking me to be perfect as He is perfect?

  1. God is asking you to be perfect as He is perfect, among others, for the following seven reasons:
    1. It was a perfect you He predestined to be adopted as His child who would receive His inheritance with which to fulfill His purpose on the earth. He created you to fulfil this purpose. (Ephesians 1:4-5, 11)
    2. Without becoming perfect you cannot be holy, blameless and walking in love all the days of your life as you serve Him; your service will be unacceptable to Him. (Ephesians 1:4; Luke 1:74-75; Malachi 3:1-3)
    3. Without becoming perfect you will be unable to obey God as a lifestyle to manifest His nature that produces His glory, to fulfill His purpose for creating you of filling the earth with His glory. Without being conformed to His image by having a perfect spirit which you will secure when you become perfect, you cannot manifest His nature. (Isaiah 43:7; Numbers 14:21; Romans 8:28-30)
    4. Since you will fulfill your destiny by fulfilling God’s purpose, it means that without becoming perfect, you cannot fulfill your destiny.
    5. For God to be your Father, you must be conformed to His image by evacuating all idols from your heart for you to become perfect. (2Corinthians 6:16-18)
    6. God wants you to live a supernaturally prosperous life on the earth through His nature which you will begin to manifest naturally when you become perfect. His nature includes among others, His holiness, faith, power, wisdom, strength, love, peace, joy and all sufficiency. (3John 2; Psalm 35:27; 2 Peter 1:3-4)
    7. Without becoming perfect, you cannot receive His Three Great Rewards for fulfilling His purpose on the earth of:

    (a) Going with Jesus at Rapture, to attend the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, thereby escaping the unprecedented horrors of the Great Tribulation. (Ephesians 5:27; 1Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 19:7-9)

    (b) Reigning with Jesus in His Millennial Kingdom. (Revelation 20:6)

    (c) Spending Eternity with Christ rather than in the everlasting lake of unquenchable fire prepared for Satan and his agents. (Matthew 25:34, 41; Revelation 3:5)
