What is Excellence?

After all, if we’re going to pursue it, then we should have a clear picture of what it is. Excellence is often described as “the best you can do.” On the surface this seems like a pretty clear and simple definition, but it can be costly and down right limited.

Psalm 8:1

O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name …….

We are living in a time where the meaning of so many words that initially described our divine nature have been water down. Excellence happens to be one of them.

2 Peter 1:3,4

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory [manifested excellence] and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature ….
