Explanations: Receiving the “Good” Lord Jesus in our lives does not make us perfect, while here on planet earth. Not even the apostle Paul (a truly faithful servant of the Lord Jesus Christ) was able to claim perfection (teleioo in Greek) for himself (Philippians 3:12-13A). Yet, he is striving for that by pursuing the Lord Jesus as the very mark-target-goal of God’s high calling (Philippians 3:14), thereby no longer minding his past, but seizing the future (Philippians 3:13B). Moreover, we are being commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ to struggle-endeavor-aim-push-aspire for perfection (Matthew 5:48).

Keeping all the commandments of the LORD Jesus strengthens people, makes them inherit what He had promised and makes them live long (Deuteronomy 11:8-9).
