100% and Then Some
“Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48)
The Ranger Creed says that “I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be, one-hundred-percent and then some.” How can one give more than a hundred percent? It’s an impossibility and yet it encapsulates an attitude of commitment and thoroughness. But if you think that’s impossible, wait till you hear what Jesus has to say, “Be perfect like God.” How could anyone reach perfection? Actually, it’s is very possible. And it’s more than just and attitude. When we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and entrust our lives to Him, He gives us the righteousness of God Himself. “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him”(2 Corinthians 5:21). Although we may not act like it, the mantle of perfection is placed on us in Christ.
