What is your standard? I must not be the life of another or the teaching of another. It must not be an ideal. Nor may it be some personal goal.

Soldier of The Cross, your job is obedience. That is what He has asked and it is not going to change. We have been asked to take Him at His Word without knowing the earthly outcome.

We have One who is perfect. Who holds the stars in place. Who is elegant, yet reaches out to the worst and the most unlovely of us all.
We have One who loved us before we loved Him and gave up Glory to suffer and die for us.
We do not understand many things, but we know He rose again and is making a place for us.

He has asked for obedience, and that is the first priority. This obedience leads to a relationship with Him. It leads to Love. It leads to healing. It leads to freedom.
Stand before Him and say it again. That you are His. That you eagerly obey His Word.
Tell Him today. Aloud.
