What does it mean to be sincere, to have a sincere faith? The deception can come that you may think you are sincere in church or before God when praying, but in other circumstances, in your day to day life you are a little different. But doesn’t God see all? Shouldn’t your life be a living prayer, a live standing in front of God? Thinking that you are sincere in front of God, when you are not sincere in front of a person, is completely absurd! How can you be split inside? How many sincere people do you know? Are you sincere?
When Christ came here, He was perfect because He was the Son of God, but yet He completed His mission and did not relent until it was completely Finished. His last words on the Cross were, “It is Finished.” This perfection needed to be completed, to be perfected. The perfection is in the Cross, in the Lamb of God, all other sacrifices are not perfect. This is the basis of our faith. It is perfect and nothing needs to be added to it. The words that we have heard about being crucified and resurrected on the cross – is a perfect message for any one of us to be perfected all the way to the end. Those who are holy should be sanctified. Those who are perfect need to be perfected and grow in this perfection. We all have received a perfect faith, a faith that works, but we must complete it until the end, so that this faith is visible in our actions, in power, and boldness. We have been called to be perfect!
