Can We Reach a Higher Standard?

Why do most people, who have received the blessing of God, claim proudly that they don’t have to do anything God says? Do we really get blessings without having some requirement attached?

I have a hard time understanding why they don’t want the counsel of God. I hear the complaints of people who don’t want to better themselves. They are happy with who and what they are and want us to accept them the way they are. Yet, they complain of others, those whose manners, morals etc. are not up to their standards. And then demand that others grow up, act better and stop the bad manners and attitude.

If you, yourselves, are not trying to improve who you are, then you have no right to demand anyone to try and better themselves.

As Americans, most believe many who are now coming to America are coming for no other reason but to steal, kill, and destroy. They seem to want no part of our way of life. And, you can say that they are right, but we have shown God, repeatedly, that we don’t want a better way of life as well. Do people become the head of a company without working for that position? No more than we get better standards or habits without working them consistently into our lives.

If one isn’t going to even try to live by the standard of a country, I don’t believe they should be able to enter the country. So if you hope to enter God’s Kingdom and refuse His standard, do you think He will let you in to destroy His way of life?

Many see America as a place of refuge. A place to go for help in a time of turmoil in their own country. Ever wonder where people will go if America is no more? If the world overtakes America what becomes of our children? Do we leave them to be tortured, mutilated, raped, beheaded, thrown from rooftops? Where will our children go when their lives are endangered? Will we leave them with no hope? Would you want to leave your family at the mercy of their invaders?

Even if you can’t, yet, say as David, “Oh God how I love thy Law,” can you not seek a better way? God’s ways are better than ours. Our ways may be better than a lot of the ways of the world, but I do believe our ways are not up to God’s standard. We have room to grow. Most know we are not perfect. But just because we aren’t yet perfect, does that give us the excuse we need to stop trying?

So what can we do? First thing is we need to stop seeking, pleading with politicians and churches to help us. Believe it or not our Founding Fathers left us, the people, with the power to change things. It isn’t the government that will give us the wisdom, nor ways to do what needs done, but God.

Those who say no one is perfect, say such things as if it is their excuse to sit around and do nothing. Yet they blame everyone else: the government, people who aren’t up to their standard etc.. There are those who are perfect, and they can teach us. They are willing to help us if we would only seek their counsel.

If you need any other reason to try to live up to God’s standards, you need to remember something. God has turned a nation’s enemies against them when they refuse to seek Him and turn their nose up to His ways. As we all know, history repeats itself. Oh, the names might change but the consequences will remain the same. So the question is: how many will fall off the cliff before we change our course? For the sake of your family, for the sake of America, seek God with your whole heart. (Psst: that means using the whole Bible, including the Old Testament.)
