As a new born child . desire the sincer MILK OF THE WORD. that ye may grow there by...

Being perfect or attaining to perfection is the process of Growing up into Jesus in all things... its the process of Maturing in the spirit ,bringing anything that is of the spirit of man under subjection. Except ye are Born again of the spirit , IE receiving the baptism of the HolyGhost it is impossible to overcome the lusts of the flesh . It is God who is to will and to do of his good pleasure... Not by might Nor by power but by His spirit sayeth the lord.. There shall no flesh be glorified in the presence of he lord.

The siplicity that is in Christ is its all about him ... He is the WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE... take up your cross and follow his example... Repent and be baptized in the name of JESUS for there is no salvation in any other name...

It is possible to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect in a relative sense. Jesus was here discussing the subject of love, and he told listeners to imitate God and be perfect, or comlete in their love. How could this be done? By expanding it to include their enemies.
