Society has conjured a contemporary definition of what God’s desires are for us whether by likening it to wealth, titles, possessions or the equivocal of modern-day success. Standards have been cushioned with clouds of just having or possessing and not “being”.
We have neglected analysis of our lifestyles according to God's Word and instead analyze according to what another Christian is doing; partaking in 2 Corinthians 10:12, “but them measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”
The standard of the world has become the bread and butter of society, a norm for this generation and an “SOE” on the agenda of our lives.
However, what happened to being clothed in the presence of God through prayer and meditation before ministering?
We have all succumb to being full-time performers with facades and materialistic driven desires. Doing everything out of mere human initiative and independent of the will of God which is not rewarding.
Romans 14:12 reminds you that, “so then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”
We often liken this prosperity to wealth and properties, but are we really in the position to attain it? Are we aligning ourselves in the position to be judged by His standards and rewarded by His omnipotence?
The world’s standard has mustered a “self-highlighting” view, but it is not about us. It is about God’s standard and true image of God found in the Bible concerning Jesus Christ, who is our model (St. John chapter 14 verse 6). His expectation and standard can be your guiding light.
A Savior that served with passion through compassion and love for His Father. He worked diligently out of the will of God and not self acquisition. It is not what your church says, but what the Holy Spirit bids you to.
It is never easy, but God’s grace is sufficient for this journey of living up to His standards even in the 21st century and in a world plagued by double standards and self-driven desires.
