I want to clarify that I know all of my pressing on will never be enough. I will never be perfect enough. In my eyes, I may be satisfied where I’m at. In the eyes of those around me, I may reach a point of good enough or maybe even better than someone else. But that doesn’t matter.
In God’s eyes I will never be perfect enough on my own to enter His presence. Which if that was the end of the story, it would stink! But it’s not. God provided a way of perfection through Jesus. Jesus, who is God, while walking through earth as a man lived a perfect life. When He died on the cross, He died as a punishment that I deserved, not him.
Jesus was basically saying, “Becki, I know you are imperfect. I know you will never be perfect. My father and I want you to be with us, but you can’t since you aren’t perfect. So here’s what we decided: I am going to die on a cross and go to hell and then rise from hell to pay your price to spend eternity with us. I will cover you with my perfection if you let me.”
So while I press on, with God’s help, in this world to be the woman I was created to be, I can rest assured that no matter how much I fail, Jesus has covered me in perfection for eternity.
Have you let Him cover you in perfection as well?
