When Jesus came as the Messiah, he came to turn everything on it’s head from what the religious leaders expected. John 9:39, Jesus said, “For judgement I have come into the world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.” What the Pharisees believed about the Messiah was only partially true, but they were so concerned about tradition that they missed the details around who the Messiah would be and His purpose. For us, wasting time working towards perfection and forgetting about taking care of and loving others is not why He came. To be Christ-like does not mean to be perfect, it means servanthood to those who need it the most.
