John 1:14

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Integrity. Flourishing. Christmas.

1. Perfection looks like integrity in you, and flourishing around you.

2. Bad news: trying to be perfect yourself in sin leads to hypocrisy (lying) and rebellion (bullying).
– Impostor Syndrome

3. Good news: Jesus perfects you through his sacrifice.
– Imperfect Circumstances
– Will of the Father
– Becoming Flesh

Questions
1. According to your thoughts, emotions, and actions, what is the “good” or “perfect” life to you?

2. How have we lived as hypocrites and rebels?

3. How is the Holy Spirit perfecting you in the midst of imperfect Results and gritty details?
