 How much higher is the standard of life than the standard of (Right & Wrong)

The Sermon on the Mount does not say that everything is all right as long as things are done according to what is right(Life of Christ/Christ-likeness). Man asks why he has to turn the other cheek when someone hits him. Is it not good enough if we do not say anything when someone strikes us? Is it not wonderful that we have not rebuked him and have shown great restraint? But God says that it is not even enough to just lower our heads and leave when we are struck. This does not satisfy the inner life. We must turn our other cheek for that person to strike as well. This means that we have no hate in our hearts. We are not angry and can endure this treatment a second time. Life is humble. Life can turn the other cheek for another blow. This is the way of life. It does not matter how much we have been offended by someone, if we do not kneel down to pray for him or her, we will not have inward joy. It is good to endure in silence, but if we do not follow the teaching of the Sermon on the Mount, we will not have inward joy.

Thank you for the words you shared. Yes Christian standard is way higher than to live by law. That is why Jesus said the least in the kingdom of God is greater than the greatest man in Old Covenant, John the Baptist.
