Perfect means complete. Could there be different level's of complete?? Say, 20% complete??Does this mean that you walk in His spirit perfectly? Absolutely not. We can do nothing perfectly in this life
We see our example, Jesus, the Head of the Church Grow with a stronger spirit, filled with wisdom, and God's Grace was on him.
Luk 2:40 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
Was Jesus perfected?? NO........... He still had room to grow and increase.
Luk 2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Rom 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Gal 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
Is there a scripture that states this is impossible 24/7??
If we walk in the Spirit, can we also at the same time walk after the flesh, and going two different directions?
Walk= Greek peripateō
1) to walk
1a) to make one’s way, progress; to make due use of opportunities
1b) Hebrew for, to live
to walk: - behave (2), conduct ourselves (1), conduct yourselves (1), leading...life (1), leads...life
Eph 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
Eph 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
Act 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Could there be different levels of being filled with Holy Spirit or Anointing on our life??
Could there be a way to increase in the Holy Spirit if we were lacking??
Like Jesus, Could we still do well and be perfect if we never leave the light we do have, and continue to grow?
Jesus Is Lord.
