I Thessalonians 4:3
It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality;
So much “seeker sensitive” music, literature, teaching and preaching seem to ignore this important scripture. As I was preparing music for this week’s service at the church I attend I was reading a lyric that expresses that thought quite well.
“I’m re -minded Your grace never asks for perfection” (Even Then, Kyle Lee, Micah Tyler, Tony Wood)
Perhaps a more effective expression of this might be, I’m reminded that Your Spirit always leads to perfection.
Obviously I am perhaps jaded by my own Wesleyan viewpoint, but semantics aside, God would have us to be as complete in Him as we could possibly be at any moment in time. One need only read and comprehend John Wesley’s Plain Account of Christian Perfection to gain understanding of this concept of entire sanctification.
Saying that God looks for less is like saying that the bus will put us off several miles from our destination and we will have to walk the rest of the way. Our works are obedience, not progress.
