I, Matthew David Karr, am now Complete:
Perfected In Him
I was called to God's Kingdom and Service on February 18th, 1971. I wasn't here to be idle, letting somebody else do my job. I was here to be ever busy-not for myself-but for God's Kingdom. We are in God, and He is in us. We must walk in Him, as He desires to walk in us. Because of God's love, we become one with Him, complete in ideal harmony. His love, in action in us, draws others into balance. Then, like us, they become complete in Him. I became complete in Him on October 29th, 1999.
Now, at last, I've reached my goal:
I endure long and am patient and kind. I am never envious nor boil over with jealousy. I am not boastful or vainglorious, nor do I display myself haughtily. I am not conceited or inflated with pride. I am not rude and unmannerly nor do I act unbecomingly, because I am love. I am not self-seeking: I do not insist on my own way. I am not touchy, fretful or resentful. I take no account of the evil done to me and pay no attention to a suffered wrong. I rejoice not at injustice and unrighteousness, but when right and truth prevail, I bear up under anything and everything that comes and am ever ready to believe the best of every person. My hopes are fadeless under all circumstances; I endure everything without weakening. I never fail, fade out, become obsolete, or come to an end. Because God through Jesus has made me perfect, I can say I never come to an end. God says love never fails. I am love. God, an eternal being, made us eternal beings. Therefore we never fade out or become obsolete. We have everything within us to make and keep us perfect. The body may decay and waste away, but the real me will live on forever, perfect, bound together in ideal harmony with God the Father.
We have the direction we need to become perfected and complete: God's Word. the Bible. Until we are complete, we have the Righteousness of Jesus Christ, which makes us perfect in His eyes.
