1 John 2: 1-6
God expects us to be perfect, but sin makes perfection impossible. Jesus' perfection covers our sin, but God's expectation therefore is that we will deal with our sin by doing what He says in His Word which is to live like Christ in every situation.
Many times we feel confident in knowing what God's plan for us is when truly we are lucky if we have a basic grasp of a tiny part of God's timeless, interwoven, multi-faceted plan for humankind from creation throughout eternity. We need to begin to understand the view from God's perspective as He looks at us within His grand plan.
