How effective would it be as an evangelistic tool to try to explain to an unbeliever that s/he is commanded to be perfect, but s/he can't be without Jesus?

Matthew 5:48 48Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Can I tell the unsaved that he must be perfect to get into heaven because Jesus commanded it?

Matthew 5:48

ESV - 48 You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
