How many times do "we decide" to be a better person, for whatever reason, only to see it last a week or so, if that long? When we try to be "good" we will always fail because of our "imperfect" will, "imperfect" knowledge, and "imperfect" relationship with GOD. We are trying to achieve "Perfection" through "Imperfection". "...when that which is perfect comes; that which is imperfect vanishes away." (1 Corinthians 13:10). When anything which is perfect is seen or enJOYed, then that which is imperfect is forgotten, laid aside and the desire for "imperfection" vanishes. Experiencing the Perfection of CHRIST changes us from the inside out. Just as the moon and stars fade when the sun comes, we experience a brighter "light" in our new "self", and no longer desire our old self. Our change is not by degrees, or different levels of progression; it is an instant and all encompassing transformation when we are exposed to GOD'S Perfection; To be who GOD created us to be, IS NOT A MATTER OF WILL POWER.
