One of the subjects that my students love to complain about is penmanship. Most of them have decent penmanship, a few have really outstanding handwriting skills. Some of them could do better if they wouldn’t try to rush through it and get it out of the way. To do a good job in their handwriting work all they have to do is follow the example in the book and duplicate it in their work.
In somewhat the same way, God expects us to copy his example perfectly. He says,” Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father, is perfect.” Matthew 5:48. God is our Creator and as such He can demand that we obey his will. He has laid out his divine will for us to follow. We only have to follow his perfect will and duplicate his example in order to stay on his good side. The problem is that we don’t follow through on his will, nor are we able to do it. In fact from the moment we entered this world, we were a failure in respect to God’s will. And there is nothing we can do to change the fact that we failed.
God knew the predicament we would be in even before he created all things. And he planned our redemption. He sent his own Son to do what we can’t do, live a perfect life. Then, he gave up his life to pay for our sins and remove our guilt. He rose from the grave to assure us that all is complete and heaven is God’s gift to all who believe.
We may not have perfect penmanship but in God’s eyes, we are perfect!
