“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father in Heaven.”
That was the aim I set before My disciples when I spoke to them on the Mount.
That is the aim I set before you and every follower of Mine today.
To achieve this you would be as God.
To aim at less would mean an unworthy standard.
To keep your gaze on this as your standard means that your eyes are fixed on the Heights of God, always directed above the difficulties and the lower aims and desires and standards of others round you.
