Not perfectionism, closeness to God
"When the desire to live all of life from the perspective of faith is built upon God's love and forgiveness for us disclosed in Jesus Christ, the self-imposed expectation of spiritual perfection dims and finally disappears. Disciples don't expect to be perfect. They simply expect to live close to God." (Pr. Michael Foss, Power Surge: Six Marks of Discipleship for a Changing Church)
