PERFECT AND RIGHTEOUS
(Jesus Has Perfected You And Made You God’s Righteousness)
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
TO THE BIBLE
Ephesians 4:11-12 KJV “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.”
2 Corinthians 5:21 says, “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” How inspiring this is! God, having made us His very righteousness, is telling us one thing—we are perfect in Him! Some Christians don’t yet know or understand this truth, so they see themselves as unrighteous and imperfect. But if you’re born again, you’re a saint; your nature is one of perfection because the One who gave birth to you is perfect.
Hebrews 10:14 AMPC says, “For by a single offering He has forever completely cleansed and perfected those who are consecrated and made holy.” Colossians 2:10 says, “…You are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” The word “complete” means perfected; you’re perfected in Him; Christ is your perfection.
“But doesn’t our opening scripture suggest that the saints are not perfect, because it talks about “the perfecting of the saints?” you might ask. No, that verse doesn’t mean making the saints better and more perfect; it’s translated from the Greek word “katartismos” which means “equipping” or “training” the saints for the work of the ministry.
Think about this: When a child is born, that child is born as perfectly human as the parents are. The child then starts growing by feeding on the right nourishment. The child needs to be trained, and equipped with knowledge and the right information, to eventually function as adult humans do. That’s what Apostle Paul meant by “perfecting of the saints.” As you receive the Word of God into your spirit, you’re being equipped to function and carry out the work of the ministry; you’re being trained in the life of righteousness. The righteousness of God is in your spirit, but through the Word, you become more skilled in the doctrine, understanding, and application of your righteousness in Christ. Hallelujah!
