I read Psalm 104 again and some of the letter to the Ephesians.

Chapter 4, Unity of the Body, tells us in 13 “-we must grow until we become like Christ and have all his perfection”.  The context for this is very important, “This work must continue until we are all joined together in the faith and in the same knowledge of the son of God.”  This leaves little doubt that perfection is a communal command.  I can not and should not pursue perfection outside of community with other believers.  12″He [Christ] gave those gifts to make the body of Christ stronger”  Lord may your will be done.
