As a young man, relying on the Spirit of God, His Holy Spirit in all our work is vital to all of our success. Striving to succeed in what God has me to do has been a struggle. A struggle of the mind, a struggle of the heart and a struggle of the flesh. Just to live "holy" is a challenge all in itself, yet along trying to "preach the word", "teach the ways of God" and "lead others in the way that they should go". Some fake it, including myself in my past, but I couldn't do it for long. I want Gods best. Not only that, but I want to represent God to the fullest. I know that I'm just one man, but this man is about to change the world, my world. Greatness is in me and now is my time to shine and outshine all others who are my counterparts, not to bring me glory, but God.
Excellence is a big thing to strive for. I've ran from that word, the thought, the idea of it from time to time, but I know that if I rely on the Holy Spirit to lead me in all my work, I will excel. The Bible declares that "we are to be led by the Spirit", therefore the Bible declares that we operate in excellence.
God is a God of excellence, so why shouldn't His people be. They did it before, so lets do it again.
When we operate in Holy Spirit; the Spirit of Excellence, we distinguish ourselves from the world.
When we use our God-given gifts in a God-honoring way, we bring glory to God, and men will be drawn to Him.
