'WALK BEFORE HIM PERFECTLY'

"Be you therefore perfect, even as your father which is in heaven is perfect" - Matthew 5:48
.
It is good to have a personal relationship with God but it's best to walk perfectly before Him and be perfect just as He is, that is, be blameless and faultless in His sight. 
.
God demanded perfection in our walk before Him. Abram had be walking with God for over two decades but God never saw perfection in His walk. Why?
.
He went down to Egypt when there was famine (Gen. 12:10). He was still lying (vs. 13). He allowed his flesh to prevail over his walk with God by going in to Hagar (vs. 16:4) at the suggestion of his wife.
.
Is your walk perfect before God? Aren't you going into the world because God delayed His answers to your prayers? Are the works of the flesh not finding expression in your life seeing that you're born again and filled with His spirit? What is that thing that's giving the enemy an occasion to blaspheme the name of God in your life?
.
You can walk with God perfectly. It's attainable! God doesn't want you to be a human perfectionist but that you maintain a a perfect relationship with Him. How can I achieve this?
.
The whole laws required in order to walk with God perfectly is encapsulated in one verse: Luke 10:27, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, with all your mind; and you shall love your neighbor as yourself".
.
When you love God wholeheartedly, you won't sin against Him, you'll serve Him faithfully and do all His will. When you love God, it'll be easier for you to love your neighbors as yourself.
.
Brethren, loving God is the only way to walk with Him perfectly. Love's way is the best way. When you love Him first in your secret place and in your walk with Him, it'll be a lot easier for you to serve Him in public.
.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, shed the love of God abroad in my heart in Jesus name.
