Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.  (Matthew 5:48)

Perfection, as the highest aim of what God in His great power would do for us, is something so Divine, Spiritual, and Heavenly, that it is only the soul that yields itself very tenderly to the leading of the Holy Spirit that can cope to know its blessedness….The more we learn to desire this full conformity to God’s will, for the consciousness that we are always pleasing Him, we will see that all this must come as a gift direct from heaven.  This gift is the full outbirth in us of the life of God, the inbreathing of the Holy Spirit of Jesus in those who are wholly yielded to His indwelling and rule.
