In The Spirit Through Christ

Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the Holy Spirit by obeying the law of Moses? Of course not! You received the Spirit because you believed the message you heard about Christ. How foolish can you be? After starting your new lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort? Have you experienced so much for nothing? Surely it was not in vain, was it? I ask you again, does God give you the Holy Spirit and work miracles among you because you obey the law? Of course not! It is because you believe the message you heard about Christ. (‭Galatians‬ ‭3‬:‭2-5‬ NLT)  

 
We all like things to be perfect; to have our purchases in perfect conditions, our environment to be perfect, hoping the people around us are perfect, and even want ourselves to be perfect. 
But we all know it’s not possible, even if we tried our best. Nevertheless, people still have this lofty idea of achieveing personal perfection and enlightenment. 

You see, the way of the law of Moses is personified by 2 stone cold tablets but the way of grace and perfection is personified by the warm pumping heart of our Lord Jesus Christ. One that was heart-broken and bled at the cross. 

There is only a way to perfection. By the power of the Holy Spirit through the Christ. 

 
The way of the cross.
