By what standard do we measure things?
Our modern faith is coming more and more under threat from the 'world's standards.' As Christians we are spending less time in places that shape us spiritually and as a result we have started to allow 'another standard' to impact our Christian lives.
"Above all, let us guard against the temptation, to which we are all susceptible, of lowering our standards to match our lives, rather than raising our lives to match our standards." - William Wilberforce
I would like to change the last lines his quote to read - "raising our lives to match GOD'S standards!"
Ezekiel 11:12 - "And you will know that I am the LORD, for you have not followed my decrees or kept my laws but have conformed to the standards of the nations around you."
What's your take?
Living in Grace,
