YHWH’s standard of perfection is different from ours, but when we continually keep saying “I am not perfect” we are denying the working of God’s love in us.
When we allow God to work on and in us through His Love then we will be perfected in His love.
We look at perfection based on our attitude, our outward behavior and our sinful nature but God does not. He looks at our heart, that is what He perfects and once that’s perfected in His love our response to sin and the things of the world will change and we will no longer have a desire to sin or to compete with the world or live as they do.
Without us being conscious of it fear is the root to imperfection on YHWH’s standard of perfection which is accomplished through love.
Coming to the knowledge and understanding of God’s love and embracing it will remove all fear and you would be made PERFECT in God’s love. Because of Yeshua’s sacrifice on the Cross His Blood makes us perfect in the eyes of YHWH, because when He looks at us He does not see us but the Blood of His Son.
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. — 1 John 4:18
