Many misconstrue perfection to be sinlessness, and therefore do not pursue it. However, true perfection from God’s perspective is a friendly heart towards Him.
God commands us to be perfect and therefore it is attainable. He searches for those with perfect hearts:
2 Chronicles16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him…
“Christian perfection is not, and never can be, human perfection. Christian perfection is the perfection of a relationship with God that shows itself to be true even amid the seemingly unimportant aspects of human life.”
~ Oswald Chambers
