Are your standards high or low. Standards is how you rate or grade yourself, how is yours? Is it high or low? Is it based, founded or established on your education, fame or fortune?
High standards, put you in class or category above mediocrity, it puts you among the elites, the best of the best, its privileges and choices are superior and endless.
Now I see why so many people will not accept or follow, serve or worship God, they use the high standards He set as an excuse and would rather settle for less, even die.
Matthew 26-28 tells you about what Jesus went through and did for us to be free from the bondage of sin and Philippians 2:7 mentions what He did.
But for us to enjoy the privileges, we must raise our standards, the highest of which is righteousness. This means to be in right standing with God, the apple of His eyes, this is the foundation that you build on. Matt 6:33 tells us to seek Gods kingdom and His righteousness first and only then will He give you what you want.
I must inform you that you are not getting anything from God if you are not righteous, here are the scriptures to prove it. Romans 3:21-26; 2Cor.5:21; Psalms 11:7; Psalms 37:25; Matt.5:6; 1 John 1:9; Romans 5:17 and the list goes on.
Here are a few of the benefits of righteousness, Gods eyes are on you and He hears you when you pray (1 Peter 3:12) isn’t that good? It gets better James 5:16 tells us ,’the effectual fervent prayers of the righteous person availeth much.’ That’s just a taste of what will happen when you raise your standards to the height or level of Jesus.
