Hebrew 5:12-14 – For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of Elohim; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
13 For every one that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Full age is Strong’s #5046 which is the same word meaning mature, perfect and complete. So we see again, having our senses exercised is this process of going on to perfection.
Romans 12:1-2 – I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of Elohim, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, Set Apart, acceptable unto EL, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of Elohim.
The process of perfection takes a willingness on our part to sacrifice ourselves in service to others – to give of our time in prayer and study, filling our minds with His Spirit and truth – to transform ourselves into His fullness and stature. This is His will for us.
Colossians 4:12 – Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Messiah, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of Elohim
II Timothy 3:16-17 – All scripture is given by inspiration of Elohim, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of EL may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
This is also achieved through the transforming power of prayer.
