    You, therefore, must be perfect [growing into complete maturity of godliness in mind and character, having reached the proper height of virtue and integrity], as your heavenly Father is perfect.

    — Matthew 5:48 (AMPC)

    MAY 17, 2021
    Perfect in Christ
    From the book Trusting God Day by Day – by Joyce Meyer

    We have a command (or perhaps it is a promise) in Matthew 5:48: Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect (NIV). Because God is perfect and is working in us, we can also look forward to sharing in His perfection.

    The apostle Paul said although he had not already been made perfect, he pressed on toward the goal. He then said those of us who are imperfect should be thus minded, to let go of what was behind us (mistakes) and press on. In essence, he was saying that in God’s eyes, by faith in Jesus Christ, he was perfect, yet he was not totally perfected (see Phil. 3:12–15).

    We must learn to see ourselves in Christ, not in ourselves. Corrie ten Boom taught that if you look at the world, you will be oppressed; if you look at yourself, you will be depressed; but if you look at Jesus, you will be at rest. How true it is that if we look at ourselves—at what we are in our own abilities—we cannot be anything except depressed and totally discouraged. But when we look to Christ, the Author and Finisher (perfecter) of our faith, we can enter His rest and believe He is continually working in us (Heb. 12:2 NIV).

    We always say, “Nobody is perfect.” What we mean is that nobody manifests perfect behavior, and that is a correct statement. Our behavior, however, is quite different from our identities.

    The Bible says that faith in Jesus makes us righteous, but in our actions, we don’t always do the right thing. I have said for years, “Our who is different than our do.” We don’t do everything right, but God always loves us. He always sees us “in Christ,” through our faith in Him, and He views us as perfect in Christ while we are still being changed by His power.

    Trust Him that at this very moment, you are perfect in God’s eyes and on your way to perfection, not because of anything you have done but because of who you are in Christ. Trust God to continually work in you to help you mature, grow, and change.

    Prayer Starter: Father, I want to be made perfect and I believe that in Your sight, I am being made perfect while you continue to help me grow and change. In Jesus’ name, amen.

  2. OPEN HEAVEN 17 MAY 2021 TOPIC: He Will Take You There

    MEMORISE: To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. – Revelation 3:21

    READ: READ: John 14:1-3 (KJV)
    1. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
    2. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
    3. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

    BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Mark 6-7

    Open Heaven 17 May 2021 MESSAGE:
    The ultimate goal of all genuine Christians is to make Heaven; this is why Jesus died for mankind. Jesus said of Himself in Luke 19:10:
    For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

    Only overcomers can make it to Heaven. How then can you overcome? First, you must overcome all the evil thoughts in your heart. Our Lord Jesus said in Revelation 3:20:
    Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

    Proverbs 23:26 also says My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.

    Beloved, when we allow Jesus Christ to come into our hearts, He will give us victory over all the thoughts that defile us and make us candidates of hell. You must allow Jesus into your heart because naturally, the heart of man is desperately wicked (Jeremiah 17:9).

    What exactly is in the heart that makes it wicked? Mark 7:21-23 provides the answer to this question:
    For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

    Open Heaven 17 May 2021 – He Will take you There!
    It is only those who overcome the above listed sins who would get the power to enter into Heavenly bliss. You cannot do it by yourself; this is why you need Jesus, who can give you the power to live above sin. The power that overcomes sin is the power we need to make Heaven and Jesus is ready to give you if you are willing to forsake Satan, sin and every form of wickedness. You must make conscious efforts to flee all appearances of evil like Joseph did in Potiphar’s house. Beginning from now, your struggles with sin are over in Jesus’ name.

    The power of “Go and sin no more” as was given by Jesus to the woman caught in the act of adultery shall be yours today and you shall make Heaven at last, in the mighty name of Jesus.

    Open Heaven 17 May 2021 PRAYER POINT:
    Father, please give me the power to overcome sin today. Make me a candidate of heavenly bliss, in the mighty name of Jesus.

    1. Conquerors and overcomers now are we,
    Thro’ the precious blood of Christ we’ve victory
    If the Lord be for us, we can never fail,
    Nothing ‘gainst His mighty pow’r can e’er prevail.

    Conquerors are we, thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood,
    God will give us victory, thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood
    Thro’ the Lamb for sinners slain,
    Yet who lives and reigns again,
    More than conquerors are we,
    More than conquerors are we.

    1. In the name of Israel’s God we’ll onward press,
    Overcoming sin and all unrighteousness;
    Not to us, but unto Him the praise shall be,
    For salvation and for blood-bought victory.

    2. Unto him that overcometh shall be giv’n,
    Here to eat of hidden manna sent from heav’n,
    Over yonder he the victor’s palm shall bear,
    And a robe of white, and golden crown shall wear.
