My book "The Power of Perfect", the perfect work of a perfect God in man, is now available on WestbowPress.com, Barnes and Noble and Amazon.


Did you know that to be one with God and enter into God's realm of heaven, you have to be perfect. God requires you to be perfect in everything you say, do or think from the day you are born till the day you die. In addition to that you must also think holy and have righteous actions that is on equal footing with God all of your life time. That really blows all those religions trying to do a bunch of good stuff to make up for all the bad stuff they have done in their lifetime. But this is why the Bible says "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". No one is capable of attaining that level of perfection. If you are going to qualify to meet God's standard then God is going to have to do something to raise you up to his level of holiness and righteousness. He is going to have to account for your failures and sins with some kind of cleansing action and give you the ability to be righteous and holy.


The book "Power of Perfect" describes all  the things God did to make that happen. He did a perfect work in you so you can be perfect in His sight and make one with Him, a child of God. What is that perfect work? How does it change you and what can you now do because of it. Within you is the Power of the Perfect work of God. Once you realize what it is and what you can do, the question becomes, what will you do with it? His plan is for you to serve Him and do great and mighty things to change the world. It could be that the great and mighty thing might seem insignificant to you but not to Him. Everything itsy bitsy action we do for Him in faith is great and mighty to Him.


So why am I saying all this? His people, Christian people are not doing the things He asked them to do. They are not doing the big things, little things or even the itsy bitsy things that really matter to Him. Today's world is in a great big mess. It got that way not because the bad and powerful people of this world pushed their way in and ran over the Christians and imposed a sinful and immoral world upon us. No, it got that way because Christians, who had the power of the perfect work of God contained within them, did not do what God, through Jesus, asked them to do: Go in His authority, make disciples and teach them the things that He taught His disciples to do. That one sentence sums it all up. If we had done that, the world would not be in a big mess. That one sentence would eliminate all the immorality, the perversion, crime and evil that is going on in our world.


Instead of standing in His perfect power and changing the world, Christians have basically laid back and just tried to enjoy the ride. Waiting for that day when they would leave this horrible place and sit in the heavenly fields with Jesus, listening to Him telling them how wonderful they are. Not.


Is there still time to save the world? Yes. How? Repent, humble yourself and pray, and do what He asked you to do: Go in His authority, make disciples and teach them the things that He taught His disciples.


What did He teach His disciples? Read Mark chapters 9 and 10. That's a good place to start. I'll save that for next time.
