Rhapsody Of Realities 30 April 2022 By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome (Christ Embassy): Make Up Your Mind For Excellence
TOPIC: Make Up Your Mind For Excellence (Rhapsody of Realities 30 April 2022)
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
Rhapsody Of Realities For Today MESSAGE:
In our opening verse, the Lord Jesus instructs to let your light so shine that men may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. The word “good” here refers to something eminent, choice, surpassing, precious, useful, suitable, commendable, admirable – something excellent in its nature and characteristics, and therefore well-adapted to its ends.
This means that when you, as a child of God, commit to always executing your tasks and projects with excellence, your light will so shine before men that they will see your good works. Your good works will speak for you and men will not be able to ignore you. God wants to deliver the world into the hands of His children who have been trained to walk in excellence; those who will go the extra length to deliver the best results. Does that describe you?
It is time you appraised yourself and made the conscious choice to be the best at what you do. Reject half measures. Do excellent things. Excellence cannot be ignored. It reminds of what the Bible says in Proverbs 22:29, “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.” When you have an excellent mind and do excellent things, you will not take a back seat to anyone.
Excellence is for those who make a choice to do excellent things as a personal policy. Imagine it was revealed that an airline cut corners in their fleet maintenance and their pilots habitually skipped pre-flight checks, you would not want to board any of their planes. It is for the same reason that you must refuse to cut corners or accept half measures in anything you do. It does not matter whether or not someone would notice; just make the right choice for excellence and run with it.
I have an excellent spirit and an excellent mind, and I do excellent things. The Spirit of God in me has given me extraordinary amplitude of comprehension and sagacity. I have keen mental discernment and excellent judgment. Therefore, I pay attention to details and execute excellently in every endeavour, to the glory of God! Hallelujah!

Daniel 6:3 (KJV) “Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.”
Daniel 5:12 (KJV) “Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and shewing of hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation.”
