A Journey Toward Perfection

A Journey Toward Perfection is a in-depth study of the attributes recorded in the Beatitudes of Matthew 5, the attributes God bestowed upon us when He created us in His image. He created us to love. These traits are crucial in experiencing the love of God and learning how to love others as God loves us. These characteristics are central to our Christian spiritual growth.

The disciple John often referred to himself as the “disciple whom Jesus loved” (John 13:23) because he knew the love of God personally. It was John who wrote the most quoted verses in the Gospels concerning God’s love: 

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16)

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love” (1 John 8)

In 1 Corinthians 13, Paul called love the “greatest gift” we have received from God and declared that if he does not have love “I am nothing.” What kind of love is this? What is required to experience this kind of love? The disciples and the early Christians knew God’s divine love intimately. This was the fire that ignited the Christian faith. The Good News is that God loves us infinitely!

Christ left his throne of glory and entered our reality as a man to invite us into an intimate relationship. He suffered rejection, betrayal, lashings, crucifixion and death in order to show us how much He loves us. All He asks in return is that we love God “with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind…and love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39).

Learn how to develop an intimate experiential relationship with God. Improve your relationships with others. Discover how these attributes can sustain you through the many trials and tribulations of your life. Comprehend how love truly conquers all. Experience God’s true presence in your life.
