Living Up to His Standard

Life is full of choices, yet our heavenly Father tells us which choice to make; “Choose life,” He says, “so you may live.” Isn’t it interesting that our very life depends upon us making the right choice!
Each day is full of options as we press on to obey Him. As we hear His voice, He expects us to respond. The path that we take truly determines where we will end up.
Our family has chosen the narrow path. The way that is “hard to find” and crowded with obstacles. The amazing grace of Jesus clears the route as we consistently choose to follow Him. His way is not always the easy way, but is the right way. As a pastor that I truly love would say, “Its tight, but its right!”
The realities of this world would try to cloud the road before us, but our savior gives us the strength to stand. Even to stand alone. Most times we stand alone, but we stand. We do all we know to do, therefore, He gives us the fortitude to move on.
There is no backing down for those who are called to fight in His army. No giving up for those who live to hear His words, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”
As we all live for our King, let us truly live for Him. Let’s allow our lives to shine so that those around us will have no other choice, but to be drawn to this light.
He has comforted me lately with these words from Matthew 19, “ And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or property, for my sake, will receive a hundred times as much in return and will inherit eternal life. But many who are the greatest now will be least important then, and those who seem least important now will be the greatest then.”
So, we have decided to find comfort and joy in His words of truth. I pray that you would also live your life to His fullest.
