33Now, the blood could not be perfect by an animal. But the Blood in Christ was perfect. Now, I will never be perfect. And you will never be perfect. I will never be perfect in your sight. You will never be perfect in my sight. But let’s lay that aside. What about in God’s sight? I look at you as a human. I look at you as a brother. But God looks at you through the Blood of His Son as a redeemed one. Jesus said, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.” And not what you’ve done, you have nothing to merit it, but it’s what Christ did for you.

14God looking through the Blood, He doesn’t see you no more as a sinner, He sees you redeemed. Amen. You’re redeemed because He’s always sees you through Christ. That’s the reason we can be perfect. Not perfect in the sense of sinless, we’re perfect in the eyes of God when we’re in Christ. That’s the reason He said, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.”
Paul in the 10th chapter of Hebrews trying to explain the law having a shadow of good things to come, not the very image of the things could never make the comer unto perfect, because God was looking through animal blood. But now He looks through the Blood of His Son. Perfection come by Jesus Christ.
Now, I’m not perfect in your sight. You may not be perfect in my sight. But what about in God’s sight? There’s where it lays. And if you’re borned again into the body of Christ, then God looks upon you as a perfect as Christ was Himself. Amen.
Nothing you can do; it’s not by any works you can do at all. It’s by grace God has give you this offer, and if you’ve accepted it, in the sight of God you are perfect, redeemed, washed in the Blood of the Lamb, Without fault, without blemish, without spot. Isn’t that marvelous?
