Higher Standard

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9

When I first heard of the Ashley Madison site being hacked, to be honest I didn’t think much of it because I never even heard of the company. But as the days went on and names were being revealed we soon realized this is a big deal. The sins of many being exposed to the world and the fallout as many families and marriages are destroyed and broken.

And then we come to find out there are even self-proclaimed Christians on this site saying there living a double life.

Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. 1 Timothy 5:20

So what do we do with all these Christians who claim to be living like Jesus but acting like Satan? Do we continue to give them a pass or is it time to call them out on there transgressions?

I have sadly come across many who call them selves Christians believe they can use Jesus as a free pass to live a sinful life. This is false doctrine. Jesus said Deny Yourself first then carry your cross and follow him. Sin is all about self pleasure, so if your living a sinful lifestyle you never denied yourself to begin with.

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:14

So many will use the excuse we are all born sinners, therefor I can’t stop sinning. Jesus became human and walked the Earth for over 30 years and never sinned. Do you not think Jesus was tempted?

He showed us that a human could live a righteous life but it takes sacrifice and discipline. We might not be able to be like Jesus but we can strive to be like him. Isn’t that why we call ourselves Christians to have Christ living inside of us?

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:22-23

Make no mistake about it there will be many that prophesied in the name of Jesus and he will reject them. Why? Because they are fake. There mouth is saying one thing while there heart is in another place, you can’t serve two masters. Your either following Jesus or your following Satan, that’s it.

Are people really seeing Jesus living thru you? It’s time we hold ourselves to a higher standard, not of the world’s standard but of Gods standards in Jesus Name Amen
