THE PATH TO PERFECTION - God's Ethics Part 5

“Therefore you shall be PERFECT, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.”  
Matthew 5:48

Perfect?  YEAH RIGHT!  Are you kidding me?  Is that even possible?  That's the question that we discussed yesterday in the Week 5 series finale of God's Ethics: Realigning Your Moral Compass.

The key is in understanding what the word "perfect" really means.  If you define it as "sinless" or "without any blemish", then you're going to feel frustrated and discouraged.  But is that how Jesus meant it?

I say NO!  And I invite you to check out the message above to see for yourself.  You'll discover that perfection isn't at all what you think it is and that actually, it's a lot more within your reach than you realize.

ETHICS VS OBEDIENCE - God's Ethics Part 1

“There are two ways, one of life and one of death;
but a great difference between the two ways.” 
Didache 1:1

ETHICS VS OBEDIENCE.  One is how we look at right vs wrong; the other is how God does.  One is relative and ever changing; the other is fixed.  One focuses solely on actions and behavior; the other focuses on a mindset.  One talks about sin as a line you can't cross; the other looks at sin as a slope you shouldn't mess with.

Most importantly, one leads to life; the other leads to death.

Which one are you using as you walk through life???

Check out Part 1 in our newest series at The Well called GOD'S ETHICS: REALIGNING YOUR MORAL COMPASS to help you see the difference and answer this extremely important question for yourself.
