Perfection Trap?

Perfectionism is a way of trying to be my own god, rejecting my need for salvation from sin by a savior. It seeks reasons to be proud of myself. Proverbs 3:7 warms me not to be wise in my own eyes. This rejects Jesus’ Cross and its abundant grace. Faith in Jesus is all I need to be fully righteous. Perfectionism rejects the freedom that Jesus has given me. Romans 8:1 says there is no condemnation for me as a believer. Galatians 5:1 tells me to stand firm in Jesus’ freedom. Jesus is my only Hope.
