Can God Boast About You?

Then the LORD asked Satan, "Have you noticed my servant Job? He is the finest man in all the earth. He is blameless--a man of complete integrity. He fears God and stays away from evil. And he has maintained his integrity, even though you urged me to harm him without cause." ( Job 2:3).

Again, the Lord said to Satan:

 "Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil." (Job 1:8). 

Can God Boast About You? 

How blameless are you before God? Do you stay away from evil? Do you honour God? Or are you of the school of thought that it's not possible to be perfect and blameless? 

Matthew 5:48 says be ye perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. We are to become perfect and walk towards perfection.

How to walk towards perfection
1) Cleanse yourselves from everything that defiles your body and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God (2 Corinthians 7:1). It means to stay away from the things that would tarnish your walk with God whether it's what you see, read, hear, where you go, etc.

2) Study the Bible everyday and carefully do what is written in it (Joshua 1:8). 

3) Ask the Holy Spirit to help you (John 14:26). 

4) Be disciplined.

5) Love the Lord and do things that show that you love Him. 

The bible says that For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life ( John 3:16). If you were to personalise John 3:16 to your life, what would you say? For (insert your name) loves the Lord that....


Prayer
The strength and boldness to walk in perfection, Lord grant unto me in Jesus' name. Help me to live in perfection. 

Have a great week ahead!
