LOWER STANDARDS

Most of us at some point in our life lower our standards, dignity and morals to get ahead or to choose a mate. Most modernized churches have done so, which is contrary to the Bible. But no matter what, God never lowers His standards to accommodate us nor is He willing to accept less than the best from us. Most people think that because they go to church or are involved in church activities that they are, without a doubt, on their way to heaven.

But in Revelation 3: 16-17, God says this;

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked

this is a powerful statement from the Lord which tells us that He will never lower His standards. So I ask you this, why should He? Isn’t it low enough?

Do you really think that you can keep lying, committing fornication, cheating and stealing then end up in heaven because of a good deed you did? Galatians 5:19-21 tells us that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Ephesians 2:8-9 says,”For by grace we are saved through faith not of ourselves, it is the gift of God not of works lest anyone should boast.”

In order for us to meet God’s standards, we must comply to Romans 12:1-2, which tells us to present our bodies as living sacrifices; holy and acceptable unto God which is our reasonable service and not to be conformed to this world but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. That we may prove what is that good, acceptable and the perfect will of God. Do you know what the penalty of sin is? The Bible states in Romans 6 :23 that,

“The wage of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

God’s gift is Jesus Christ, who is His only begotten son according to John 3:16. Would you like to know Jesus Christ who is the only way to God? if you are ready then go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions.

SIN IS SEPERATION

Most people don’t realize that, all sins, lead to some sort of separation. From cheating on your spouse, to turning your back on God. However, the consequences are somewhat different, they both lead to divorce, but one leads to eternal death. There was a time years ago, we were doomed forever. Because of our multitude of sins, we used to live just like the rest of the world, full of sin, and obeying satan: who is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. We were born with an evil nature, and we were under Gods anger. But God is so rich in mercy, and loves us so much, even while we were doomed because of sin (Ephesians 2:1-4), He found a way to save us, and that’s through His only begotten son Jesus Christ(John 3:16-17, John 6:40,John 14:6). God saved us by His special favor when you believed, and we can’t take credit for anything, it is a gift from God, salvation is not a reward for the good things we did, so no one has any bragging rights. Yes, friends we are Gods masterpiece, who He has created new, through Christ Jesus(Ephesians 2:8-10).

Can you see the devastation, and the destruction we would face, if God didn’t send Jesus Christ. Folks we had no hope, no promise, and no God, and what is sad, is that we didn’t know Him then, and He sent His son to lead, show, tell, and guide us to Him, and people refuse to accept, and believe that God sent Jesus so that we have a way to repent. Imagine, we were separated from God, His hope, and His promises, He sent Jesus, to break down the walls of separation, and become the bridge to bring us closer to our true creator, and people, are refusing Him, seeking someone else, now I understand the meaning of (Hosea 4:6)’my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge’. Why can’t we just, ‘seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts, and return unto the Lord before its too late…our thoughts and ways are not like His, it’s billions of miles apart'(Isaiah 55:6-9). Jesus  broke down the barriers of separation, so we are no longer strangers, aliens, and foreigners, but citizens, sons, daughters, and joint heirs of the promise of eternal life(John 3:16).

I just can’t figure out how some one could refuse, or neglect so great a salvation (Hebrews 2:3). I pray that God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, may give you the spirit of wisdom, and revelation, so that you may know Him better, and the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that, you may know the hope to which He has called you, and you will see the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power, for us who believe, that power is like the working of His mighty strength. (Ephesians 1:17-19).

    I must give God, my Heavenly Father all the praise, glory, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message out there, I pray it will heal, deliver, and set free who it must, and we all will continue to walk according to His will, and way in Jesus Mighty Name, amen.
