“Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;”
King James Version (KJV)

[Heb 7:26 KJV] 26 For such an high priest became us, [who is] holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
[1Jo 3:3 KJV] 3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
[2Co 5:21 KJV] 21 For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
[1Pe 2:22 KJV] 22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

These are things that the Lord wants His believers to be involved in. Some are personal growth as a believer.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye DID IT NOT to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
There's lots of groups that have outreaches. I helped another lady run the Benevolence ministry: distributing food and clothing to people in need. I loved it. Met many nice, but hurting people.
We do this as unto the Lord. It's like an offering of your time and love.
Choose what is agreeable you.
Here's some scriptures on personal growth. The hardest one to learn is patience, for me
2 Peter 1:5-7

Good question and I can understand why one would ask.
The answer is: NO!
No man(or woman) can or will ever be perfect. The Bible clearly teaches us that we all have sinned and have fallen short.
Striving to be perfect will bring anxiety and condemnation. We can't be perfect for it is literally impossible. We can't be Jesus, but we can strive to follow in his footsteps. When we slip we must confess it to Him and repent.
We must learn from our mistakes and strive to be better. Be the best version that we can be and improving when we see the opportunity.
I hope that helps!

Hello as being a save Christian, do we have to strive to be perfect, or are we already perfect according to the word of God, for the Word of God says be ye therefore perfect as your Father in Heaven is perfect?

These wonderful words of life are so inspiring.
Beautiful encourgement to the christian individual as well as the church as a whole.
Troubled times are comming, yes are here. We must be in agreement with each other,strengthen one another, present the gospel of Jesus Christ to others in the spirit of love.
