'Perfected' in the Bible
Tell Tyre, who lives at the gateway to the Mediterranean Sea, who serves as the international merchant to many coastal districts: "This is what the Lord GOD says: "Tyre, you've been claiming, "I am beauty perfected.'
but he has told me, "My grace is all you need, because my power is perfected in weakness." Therefore, I will most happily boast about my weaknesses, so that the Messiah's power may rest on me.
For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.
since God had planned something better for us, so that they would not be perfected without us.
But whoever continually keeps his commandments is the kind of person in whom God's love has truly been perfected. This is how we can be sure that we are in union with God:
No one has ever seen God. If we love one another, God lives in us, and his love is perfected in us.
This is how love has been perfected among us: we will have confidence on the day of judgment because, during our time in this world, we are just like him.
There is no fear where love exists. Rather, perfect love banishes fear, for fear involves punishment, and the person who lives in fear has not been perfected in love.
