My “I” Crossed Out

sweet-i-crossed-out“You shall be blameless before the Lord your God” (Deuteronomy 18:13).

“Be perfect, therefore, as your Heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:48).

Blameless = complete, whole, entire, sound; from the root word “to be finished.” 

Perfect = finished, not needing anything else to be completed.

I cannot be perfect on my own.
I sin.
I strive but always fall short.

But the Cross of Jesus is the “I” crossed out!
From the Cross Jesus said, “It is finished.” 
There was nothing needing to be completed.
Finished.
Perfect.
Entire. 
Sound.

I, too, must take up my cross.
This is the only way to have my “I” crossed out.

Jesus said, “You are in Me and I am in you.”
As long as I remain in Him I am blameless.
I am perfect.
I am complete.
“Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God” (Deuteronomy 18:13, KJV).

Hallelujah! What a Savior!
I am complete in Him!
Today I will walk out this perfection.
Every day.
Jesus, may You be seen in me as I remain in You.

I am only perfect in You!
