We all are a work in progress. Our work zone is in our soulish realm.
It's also our job to feed our spirit man. The Word of God is Life to our spirit man.
As our spirit man gets more and more filled with God's Word, we can convert our soul to be just like our spirit man. So when God looks down on us, He sees what He wants to see: that perfect person, obeying and doing exactly what Jesus did.
Jesus said, "I don't do anything except what My Father tells Me ... I don't do that over there because My Father didn't tell me to do that."
We should have this same lifestyle as Jesus did. Saying and doing what the Father tells us to say and do ... and staying in obedience by not saying and doing what God didn't tell us.
