Continuing our study of ways we as Christians can become more useful to God, we consider that Jesus commands us to be perfect as God is perfect. We are exhorted in two main areas. We are to strive: 

  1. to love God perfectly by becoming what He has called us to be; and 
  2. to love others perfectly.

We are challenged to strive for this perfection in our hearts and lives, in our prayers, in our moderation in all things, in our contentment with our circumstances, in our bearing fruit for His glory and our willingness to suffer in order to do it, in loving our neighbors and forgiving our enemies, and in our concern for His church.
