Ye therefore shall be perfect, as your heavently Father is perfect. Matthew 5.48.

We truly know the standard laid down in the Bible for a Christian. We as followers of Christ must not follow our own will but be righteous as God is righteous and seek with singleness of heart His kingdom. But are we really such in actuality? How frequently we sin. How often our heart is unclean, our temper often flares up.

In other words we ought but we cannot. Yet at the same time we acknowledge that Christ has already attained perfection. And hence all this demonstrates the fact that only God himself can live up to the living standard He has established. Put another way, we may say that it takes the same life to live the comparable kind of living. For example, only a bird can live a bird’s life or an animal an animal’s life. So that it may accurately be stated that only God can live God’s life. And since Christ is God, therefore Christ alone can live God’s type of living.
