Is God Looking For Perfect People Or Obedient People?

God is not looking for perfect people, He’s looking for obedient people so He will make them perfect. He’s a perfect God, when we obey Him, He makes us perfect through His own perfection.

We can never be perfect on our own, we can only have perfection of God as a gift. So stop thinking you are too sinful to serve God or not qualified, just come to Him, accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Personal Savior and He will live in you, His Spirit living in you automatically makes you perfect, but to preserve this perfection you have to let the Holy Spirit lead you.

You must let the Holy Spirit lead you by spending time with the word, praying and obeying the commands of Jesus Christ. That way the Holy Spirit will lead you in paths of righteousness and empower you to overcome sin. But remember, you become perfect by just accepting Jesus as your Lord and Personal Savior, but this must be preserved through continuous obedience.

Your being perfect is not by your own effort, it is a gift, but preserving the gift of perfection is by living in continuous obedience to His word.

John 14:23-24 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

Galatians 3:2-3 I only want to learn this from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?

Galatians 5:16-21 So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will never fulfill the desires of the flesh. For what the flesh wants is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit wants is opposed to the flesh. They are opposed to each other, and so you do not do what you want to do. But if you are being led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. Now the actions of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, promiscuity, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, rivalry, jealously, outbursts of anger, quarrels, conflicts, factions, envy, murder, drunkenness, wild partying, and things like that. I am telling you now, as I have told you in the past, that people who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

1 John 1:8-10 If we go around bragging, “We have no sin,” then we are fooling ourselves and are strangers to the truth. But if we own up to our sins, God shows that He is faithful and just by forgiving us of our sins and purifying us from the pollution of all the bad things we have done. If we say, “We have not sinned,” then we depict God as a liar and show that we have not let His word find its way into our hearts.

deeming justice comes through the faithfulness of Jesus, the Anointed One, the Liberating King, who makes salvation a reality for all who believe—without the slightest partiality. You see, all have sinned, and all their futile attempts to reach God in His glory fail. Yet they are now saved and set right by His free gift of grace through the redemption available only in Jesus the Anointed. When God set Him up to be the sacrifice—the seat of mercy where sins are atoned through faith—His blood became the demonstration of God’s own restorative justice. All of this confirms His faithfulness to the promise, for over the course of human history God patiently held back as He dealt with the sins being committed.
