An Urgent Call to Christian Perfection
An Exposition of the Doctrine of Christian Perfection
by Tom Stewart
|Christ's Roll Call of Christian Perfection|
"I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless
I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the
flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me"
Because Christ is the Son of God Who Loved Me and Gave Himself for Me... I will live the life of Christ by faith.
"Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an
example, that ye should follow His steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found
in His mouth... that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness"
Because Christ is Our Suffering Example... I will follow Him as dead to sin and alive to righteousness.
"Herein is our love made perfect, that we
may have boldness in the say of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world"
Because Christ is Perfect Love... I will exercise perfect love until He rewards me at the day of judgment.
"LORD, who shall abide in Thy Tabernacle?
Who shall dwell in Thy Holy Hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness,
and speaketh the Truth in his heart... He that doeth these things shall never be
moved" (Psalm 15:1-2,5).
Because Christ is LORD of the Tabernacle... I will continue steadfast in faith in Him.
"Now unto Him that is able to keep you from
falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding
joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power,
both now and ever. Amen" (Jude 1:24-25).
Because Christ is the Only Wise God Our Saviour... I will not fall but will continue faultless into His presence.
