I have always tried to improve myself toward the goal of perfection. I seems that I always come up short. I get frustrated with the trying. Sometimes I throw up my arms and quit. I want to be like Jesus. The Bible says if we try and pursue the goal eventually we will become like Jesus. For we will see Him as he is and be like him. I am the image and likeness of God. God made us in His image. We are not perfect because we are still human. The flesh I live in wars against my spirit. The flesh wants to live its life on this earth. I can’t live the life of the flesh. Anyone who lives that life will destroy themselves. I want the love and approval of my Father. So I pick myself up and try again walking in His path. Eventually I will get there when my life is over on the earth. But all of this isn’t about being perfect. It is about living the life of Jesus on this earth.
