Rising To The Standard

Message For The Young
Message For The YoungSteve Gregg

Steve Gregg emphasizes the importance of Christians rising to a high standard to show others the measure of righteousness they are supposed to follow. He talks about the battle against youthful lusts and how pursuing God's holiness can take care of it. Gregg notes that avoiding temptation is not enough; one must seek purity and righteousness by pursuing godliness and avoiding environments that encourage sinful behavior. He concludes that seeking a heart wholly devoted to Jesus Christ is what makes one an identifiable brother or sister in Christ.
