For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard."
There are several passages that speak about perfection and serving God to the best of our abilities. I'd like to share a few with you.
Romans 6:20-23 NLT
When you were slaves of sin, you were free from obligation to do right. And what was the result? You are now ashamed of the things you used to do, things that end in eternal doom. But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Let's take a look at Romans 12:11 NLT
Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically.
Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Do I ever want to stop striving for perfection? Absolutely not.
