“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellence’s of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” ~ 1 Peter 2:9

As children of God, He wants the very best for us.

God wants us to live an excellent life, and this begins by living in excellence.

Excellence is not perfection, but rather the nature of being outstanding in quality. This means striving to do your best, and going above the status quo. Excellence isn’t just a series of temporary actions, but it is a part of who you are.

Have a desire for excellence. Strive to be the best you can be in all situations. Living in excellence to show the glory of God is one of the best ways for you to be a witness to others.

Excellence requires discipline.

Find ways in your everyday life to live in excellence.

Whether that means making efforts to keep your house in excellent condition, maintaining your work out habits, or being the best employee you can be- strive for excellence in every area of your life.

Start the year off by making the decision to live in excellence. I encourage you to seek God in what steps to take.

I pray you have an excellent 2018!
