Topic: A More Excellent Way [7/7/2016]
Text: 1 Corinthians 12:31
Apparently, we live in a world where quality is everything. Everyone is looking for the best quality in every product, whether goods or services. And if your products are not topnotch and meet certain standards, you won't last long in the market. As sons of God, it is best we know this so that we can compete favourably. Jesus gave a parable in Luke 16:1-12, where he illustrated that the children of the world are more wiser than the children of light, although in mischief, but we must not allow that to happen when it comes to healthy competition.
We know about the God factor in everything we are involved in, but there is "a more excellent way" (1 Cor. 12:31), and we must all strive to follow that excellent path. To remain in business, in a competitive world, excellence must not only be attained but also must be maintained and if possible improved upon. The idea of a more excellent way is that there is always room for improvement in everything that we are involved in.
We have got the excellent Spirit of God in us, and that Spirit is very competitive, He seeks to improve in everything He does. He is the inspiration of the Almighty (Job 32:8), and He is always looking out for more excellent ways to express Himself. We must align ourselves with Him. He does not want us to be out of business, rather He wants us to be competitive and shine out. Let's seek that excellence in quality that He brings, maintain and also improve on it always.
Keep winning daily.
I am a product of excellence and all my products are excellent in quality. I am improving daily in quality because there is a more excellent way to all I do. I stay ahead of my competitors because the excellent Spirit of God distinguishes me, in Jesus name. Amen.
