Practice Makes Perfect…But Not Really

“Practice makes perfect” is a cliche that means if you do something enough times, you will eventually perfect it.  Although it sounds good, I think all of us would agree that that particular theory doesn’t work in real life.

The idea of “practice makes perfect” isn’t limited to an athletic field, or a stage somewhere.  A lot of people rely on some form of human effort to earn a relationship with God.  There’s only one problem with that approach–we’re not perfect people, and we never will be.

Because of the sin in our lives, we are separated from God and need to be perfected in order to have a relationship with him.  That’s where Jesus comes in.  The Bible teaches that Jesus lived a sinless life on earth, which made him worthy to be the only acceptable and perfect sacrifice for our sins.

Hebrews 10:14 says, “For by that one offering (JESUS) he forever made perfect those who are being made holy.”

Through his death and resurrection, Jesus makes those who place their faith in him perfect in God’s sight.  To discover what it means to experience new life in Jesus Christ, click HERE.
