One of the biggest victories a church can achieve is removing the standard of men from their presence. Spirit filled churches would be more common if more sought to satisfy the standard of the Bible, not the standard of men. Believers, do not settle for the expectations of men but settle for what God wants you to be. Living for God's standard will make you stand out in the crowd, even in Christian circles, and the influence of the crowd is only as powerful as you allow it to be. The moment you question where you stand is the moment you start to blend back in. "And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God." (Luke 9:62) Amen.
