Measuring Up

Whose measuring stick are you using when you measure “success?”

The world measures from the outside
Skewed standard~~always changing…never fair

God measures from the inside
Standard of Grace~~never changing…never fair
We get better than we deserve.
(wages of sin is death…God through Christ offers life)

“But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life 
in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 6:22-23

Be wary of those who measure you according to worldly standards
and find you unacceptable or even acceptable.

God’s standard is the only one that matters for eternity!

“The LORD does not look at the thing man looks at.  
Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7b
