Pressing on to perfection

Seeking the aid of the Holy Spirit, let us aim at perfection. Let every day see some sin crucified, some battle fought, some good done, some victory won; let every fall be followed by a rise, and every step gained become, not a resting place, but a new starting point for further and higher progress.

-Guthrie
"Be ye therefore perfect,
even as your Father in heaven is perfect."
Matthew 5:48
