Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 10 – 16 April 2016
“And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him.”
“Practice makes perfect, but nobody’s perfect, so why practice?” said in a tagline in a movie way back years ago. If we look at the statement, it is made out from simple hilarity but there is a deeper meaning behind this statement, after all jokes are half-meant to be true.
We are made from perfect hands. Many parts of our body are perfectly aligned with one another and we can do sorts of stuff thru our bodies. But we, on ourselves are far from perfect.
We are humans and we commit mistakes. Be it small or large we do. It is in our inherent nature that we are not perfect and we need a perfect God to set the path for us to take. Our imperfectness also shows how vulnerable we are from sins which separates us from God.
God recognizes our need for guidance and so has sent His son to redeem us from our sins. He also sent us the Holy Spirit that may we be guided on our way in this life. The imperfectness that we have, is being filled by the perfect love from God which completes us in our lives. Furthermore, God allows us to turn back and return to Him enabling us to be restored to His holiness.
This week, let us ask our perfect God to help us in our imperfect lives.
Nothing’s perfect – except God.
