Jesus calls us “to be perfect.” The New Testament Greek word for “perfect,” teleios, means to be complete, conformed to who God has created us to be: ourselves, real. To be perfect is how we would talk about a glove which fits perfectly to the hand, or a spice which perfectly complements some food. We best hear the word “perfect” as a verb, i.e., to perfect. Conversion is life-long.
