How Do We Become Perfect?– Aaron Klein

As many of you know, from time to time, I get involved in different DIY home projects. One thing I enjoy about them is that at the end of the day, you can see that you've finished something. However, that’s not the way it always works. There are far too many projects around our house that are only 90-95% percent finished. Shower doors, painting, and trim work are all things that come to mind. The bulk of the work gets finished, and then due to different circumstances (next project that must get done, time, or finances), I move on to the next thing.

Experiences like these can sometimes burden us with regrets or tire us with the “tyranny of the urgent/unfinished.” But we must remember that when God is at work, He finishes it completely. Hebrews 7:25 says, “Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him because he always lives to intercede for them.”

Yes, we sometimes have to wait for God to finish his “Yes and Amen” promises when we go to Him in prayer. But when it comes to the saving work of Jesus Christ, it is done. It is finished. The writer of Hebrews reminds us there is only One who can guarantee that the whole task will be completed. Jesus is the One who “is able to save completely.” We tire and retire from our projects, but Jesus “always lives to intercede” for us!

May we give thanks to the true Finisher and Completer. It is Jesus who gave Himself for us “once and for all.” It is Jesus by whom we can draw near to God. And it is Jesus who is perfect forever. With thanksgiving, we can come to Him and experience His salvation and the promised perfection of heaven.
