The Lord's Expectation


Life is ____________________?

The purpose of life is _______________?

Life is not a court of law nor is it of Caesar.  

When you let outside influences impact and dictate your life, then life becomes less about your journey, but aspects of the world (good, bad, indifferent....).  

Why is your journey important?  

Whether you realize it or not, you contribute to the culture of the society in which you live and connect (online, church, job, relationships).

If you accept negative behaviors or participate in negative behaviors, then
it becomes part of the culture.

Conversely, if you do not accept negative behaviors and participate in positive behaviors, then it becomes part of the culture.  

(The only way influencers have any influence is if you give them the power.)

Now, how does the Lord figure into your journey? 

Does the Lord even figure?

I ask, because there is not a lot of living up to the Lord's standards.

What is the Lord's expectation of you?

Now, what do you have to do to make it happen?

Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
