Message by Larry Thacker Jr. for January 21: How to Be Perfect

Do you ever find some things in the Bible a little scary? I do. I think I can still remember the first time I read out of my braille King James New Testament, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Matt. 5:48) Jesus says a lot of things we find hard to do in that passage we call the sermon on the mount, but surely this is impossible! If that’s the expectation, I need firemen’s gear ’cause I’m going where it’s hot!

Why would Jesus give us an impossible task? How could anyone except Jesus Himself be perfect as the Father in Heaven is perfect? In this podcast, I give you some principles that will help as we reach for that perfection, but there’s only one way to get there. Jesus Himself is that way.
