Raise the Bar

17 Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you, 18 and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty. ~ 2 Corinthians 6:17–18

We are no longer to mimic the things of this world or to participate in them. What am I talking about? I’m talking about being a Christian. Living a life of holiness. Not making excuses about Jesus is the only Holy One. Or Jesus is the only one who is good. Or no one is perfect except for Jesus.

No! We Strive for Holiness. We might not achieve it, but it’s not for the lack of trying. We ought not to accept anything less. Strive for perfection. Strive for holiness and stop the excuses. God said we are to be holy just like He is holy.

If we set the bar just to accept salvation, what happens if you miss it? You’d miss salvation altogether. You’d be condemned to Hell for all eternity separated from God Almighty. But if you set the bar at perfection and you miss that perfection, you’ll still land among righteousness. You can never aim too high for God to help you to reach.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Raise the Bar.
