Heb. 10:14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.
The above scripture points out that those in Christ Jesus have already been perfected through the work of the cross. (We are now a perfect people in an imperfect life)
Christ is the perfect one in us He is the perfect father, mother, child, employer, employee, leader, worshiper etc…. He is all and in all living out His will in our lives.
