Perfection! Why can’t I seem to get there? Paul writes in Romans 7:15 “For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; butt what I hate, that I do.” ow can I be a true believer and not be consistent in my walk with Christ? Our struggle in the Christian life is that our expectations are not realized in this life. We struggle and struggle with our heart and our actions, as we find ourselves striving for perfection. Yet our struggle seems to be a brass ring that is always out of our grasp. This leads us to a frustration that often causes us to just simply want to give up. 1 Peter 1:3-5 challenges us to restructure our priorities and expectations in the Christian life. It reminds us that our focus needs to be on maturity not perfection. In life perfection is an unattainable goal, the more we learn, the more we know that we have more to learn! What this verse reminds us of is the reality that we are to grow in wisdom, and move toward a mature faith. That maturity can always grow, but it is something that we strive for on a daily basis. Consider this: While I may never be perfect, I can become more mature each day.
