SCRIPTURE: You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Existence in distinction or excellence means existence that makes a difference on earth.
The Scripture makes it clear that God’s children are designed and destined for existence in excellence and distinction on earth.
As children of the Most-High God, we are not designed for low-level or ground-level existence.
To be able to exist in excellence, it is important to understand what excellence is all about. This is because what is not defined cannot be found.
Now, what is excellence?
i. It means existence that makes a difference on earth.
Existence in distinction or excellence means existence that makes a difference on earth; it is existence to make a difference and not just to make a living.
When you exist in distinction or excellence, everything about you is different. You are different in every ramification – be it in your spiritual, career, ministerial, or academic life, etc.
People would notice something unique, different and distinct in what you do. For example, many years ago, a school mate of mine told me, “Sir, God has helped you because everything about you is just different. In marriage and in other areas of life, you are just different. Everything about you is just different.”
So, to exist in distinction or excellence is coming to a point in your life where, God having helped you to do what is required of you, you are just different.
ii. It means existence above obscurity.
To exist in distinction or excellence is to exist above obscurity. It is to exist with positive notoriety. You are known for something positive; you are notorious positively. No man, woman, friend or enemy can say he or she is not aware that you are alive. Nobody can claim ignorance of your impact on earth. To exist in distinction or excellence is to exist in a dimension of impact that could attract global attention.
Remember this: Existence in distinction or excellence means existence that makes a difference on earth.
1. Refuse the low-level or ground-level existence.
2. Be different; make a difference on earth.
PRAYER: Lord, I reject the lifestyle of mediocrity or low-level existence. Help me LORD to make a difference in my generation, in Jesus’ Name.
