Raising the Standard

{Jeremiah 4}

What has become of our standards? Our morals? The things our ancestors gave their lives for?
They hang tattered and neglected in moth-infested closets, forgotten by this generation.

“Set up the standard toward Zion…” says the faithful prophet.

We would do well to heed his plea.


Restoration of our standards can occur.
Our lives can reflect the King of Zion.

Under the marching orders of the Commander,
                                    we must unfurl our banners,
                                                hold the standard high,
                                                            march unashamedly
                                                                        live for one purpose alone—

… to show Christ to the world.
We are in His army. Let us hold the standard high.

  1. We are to remember that each of us as Christians, are representatives of Jesus. Do we represent Christ to the world in all that we do? 2 Corinthians 5:20 says, "Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as thought God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God."
