To become perfect

Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (Matthew 5:48)
We can approach truth with words and concepts, but really to know it we have to experience it. Truth is like a symphony whose beauty we cannot appreciate without learning how to read, play and sing. The word of God is such a symphony:
Let my tongue sing of thy word, for all thy commandments are righteousness. (Psalm 119:172)

No matter our task

Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who built it. (Psalms 127)
The Lord will never build our house, if we do not labor at all. Moreover, if we do not invite him in our work, our efforts will be vain; the house will lack solidity and will collapse when the rain, the torrents and the winds of life burst against it. Our first concern must be to invite the Lord to join us and help us in whatever we do.

Fulfilling God’s Purpose for Our Life

I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ […], that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; […] I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
