Perfect Love

We view perfect as being without flaws. But, in our earthly state, there is nothing perfect. Our body is often full of pain. We experience diseases and sickness that sometimes man is unable to fix even with his vast knowledge of medical technology and the finest medicines.

Perfection only comes with the knowledge of the Savior, the one and only Son of God. He came to earth to live and to give His life that we might be set free from sin and death. He came to set us free from an imperfect world that we might live with Him in a perfect world after death in this life.

Man considers himself as having the ability to make perfect that which isn’t. But, only through the mercy of our Lord are we able to become the perfect person and then only when we come to know Him as our true Father. He hung on the cross, shed His blood for our sins and all our sicknesses and diseases.

John 15:13, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."

Perfect love comes when we give our hearts and lives to Him through the faith he has given each of us. If only everyone would come to the knowledge of His saving grace, each could know the perfect love that only comes from above.

Society will and has tried to tell us that we can have perfect love if we do this or that. But, only He can provide the true and perfect love, which keeps us from searching mercifully for something else or someone to fill the void we feel in our lives.
