Some Amazing Standards Of Jesus

Monday 25th March 2019 Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- Matthew 5:13-48

Topic:- Some Amazing Standards Of Jesus

Text:- Matthew 5:17

Jesus standard must not be compromised for you to make heaven. The followings are some amazing standards that Jesus commanded for all Christians who have determined to make heaven and will reign with Him at the end of our lives:

1. Your righteousness must exceed that of the Pharisees. Holier than thou attitude is called: self-righteousness; sanctimoniousness; sententious. Is a feeling or display of (usually smug) moral superiority derived from a sense that one’s beliefs, actions, or affiliations are of greater virtue than those of the average person. See Isaiah 65:5; Matthew 5:20.

2. Those who abuses calling some people fool, those who quarrel and fight, the gossipers and busybodies, the backbiters, they are of the same guilty as murderers. See Matthew 5:21-22.

3. His standard on secret/hidden sin of adultery and fornication. In this standard of Jesus, He said, that of old is different than His own, i.e. more deeper than the old. His own is when in your heart you lusted for an opposite person, you have committed the sin already. See Matthew 5:27-28.

4. If you are slapped on the right cheek, turn the other side to the person to slap. Isn’t that standard of Jesus is hard to be done? How many of us can do that as a Christian? Although, Jesus is teaching us to endure as He did before being crucified. But yet, He meant His standard must not be compromised, literary as He stated. See Matthew 5:38-39.

5. Jesus laid another standard that we must be perfect like our Father in heaven is perfect. Isn’t that standard is hard to be done? To be holy as our Father God is holy? To be perfect like our Father God is perfect, i.e. without mistake? At least He Himself said nobody is good, (Mark 10:18)! What He is saying in reality is to be mature, and not to be a baby in Christ anymore. See Matthew 5:48; 1 Peter 2:2.

6. Another of His standard is on what you take into your mouth. He explained the meaning of a proverb to His Disciples that not what you take into your mouth that matter but what comes out of your heart defiled a man. The sinful act you committed start from within, your heart. See Matthew 15:11,15-20.

7. A question asked by Jesus but was not answer, even by curious Peter. Jesus was emphasizing on a standard that will He find faith on earth when He returned? Though, He was talking about faith but is a question to be answered by you and I? Will you and I be ready for Him with our faith? Will you and I be ready to go with Him in when comes the second time? You and I should be able to answer, “YES or NO!” See Luke 18:8b.

Prayer Points:-
1. Lord, prepare me, a sanctuary, pure and holy, tried and true, with thanksgiving, I will be a living, sanctuary, for You, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. I command lust to die completely both in my eyes and heart by fire henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord God, Your standard for me is to make heaven and reign with You in Your kingdom at the end of my life, help me by Your grace and fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Glorious Monday!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
