The Road to Perfection
Manna 71: What Does God Require of You?
Human nature is generally fallible
and susceptible to external influence.
Is Christ-like perfection an impossible dream?
Is corruption the norm in the world we live?
What makes it hard for us to attain spiritual perfection?
Christ offers us the most uplifting
We can become perfect.
We are reassured that the impossible will be made
possible with God’s help.
The road to perfection can be completed.
Not by human strength or will
But by yielding completely to the Spirit for empowerment
and following His word.
Constantly long for the mercy of God unto eternal life.
The foundation we build unto
perfection. (Deu 10:12)
The Law of God.
To fear God
To love Him
To walk in His ways
To serve Him
Through the Fear of God
The fear of God leads us away from evil (Prov 3:7b)
Fear, Revere, Deep respect and awe
Move towards God and away from evil
Why should we fear God?
(2Pet 1:3 – 4)
(Col 3: 1 – 3)
Do not compromise God’s principles.
Build upon the foundation of the truth to become perfect.
Through Love for God
Love, Aheb, Affection
To love the Lord we cannot see
Is it moot when we say we love the Lord but cannot perceive His
presence in our lives?
How can we manifest God’s love? (1 Pet 1:8)
How can we build up a strong love for our Lord? (Ps 136)
Accept His word
Unlock our stubborn
Understanding His love
Can you see His kind intention ?
When we resolve to love God, we are working towards perfection.
By Walking in His way
God’s way is the best way. (Ps 1: 1-2, 128: 1b)
Reorder our lives and purge from corruption (Jas 1:21, 1Pet 2:1)
Cleansing our hands, Purifying our hearts, Humbling ourselves
Trials enable us to grow
Be compelled to take a careful and honest look at ourselves
Humbly ask for His mercy and forgiveness, as well as the
strength to overcome the weakness.
Sometimes we are not quite able to see why we have to suffer.
(Ps 73: 2-4; 77:1-3: Hab 1:1-3)
Cling on to God’s promises (2 Cor 12:7-10)
Through Wholehearted Service to God
Serving God is a grace that none is worthy to receive.
(Rom 12:1; 2 Cor 4:1; Eph 3:8)
Our characters are revealed in the course of rendering
service to God.
Pride and jealousy easily surface when the heart and
motivation to serve are not right before God.
How should we serve God?
Serving God is preparing ourselves to see the face of our
Master, Jesus Christ (Lk 12:40)
