Today's passage may seem complicated but it is not:
10:5 "For Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, “The man who does those things shall live by them.” 6 But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’” (that is, to bring Christ down from above)7 or, “‘Who will descend into the abyss?’” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
So we have in theory 2 options. We can be legally perfect or we can trust Jesus to cover us with His perfection while healing us from the inside out. Option 1 is an illusion because we have already failed. All have sinned and fallen short of the glory (character) of God. Therefore seeking legal perfection or righteousness is no longer an option. It was an option for Adam and Eve before they ate the fruit but has never been a viable option for us.
The only perfection we will ever possess is Jesus. Heaven came down. He came down to our level when we could not get up to His. Don't seek perfection. Seek Jesus. Search for Him. Consider Him. Follow Him. Do it Today while you can still hear His voice. He doesn't want our resume. He wants us. He has plans for us that we can't even dream of, never mind achieve. The only resume you need is a broken life...
