Topic: Living To Make A Difference On Earth
Existence in distinction and excellence is existence in importance and relevance on earth. When you exist in distinction and excellence, you are relevant and important.
SCRIPTURE: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Matthew 5:14.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Existence in distinction and excellence means existence that makes a difference on earth.
It has been confirmed that we are destined for the top. We are destined for distinction and excellence as children of God.
Yesterday, we looked at two definitions of excellence and distinction. We noted that to exist in excellence and distinction means, to stand out in life. It also means to be a generational illumination.
Today, we shall look at further understanding of excellence and distinction:
1. Existence in excellence and distinction means existence that makes a difference on earth.
Existence in distinction and excellence means existence that makes a difference on earth. It is existence to make a difference and not just existence to make a living (Daniel 6:1-5). When you exist in distinction and excellence, everything about you is different – your spiritual life, your career life, your ministerial life, your academic life, etc., are unique. People easily see uniqueness and distinction in what you do.
2. Existence in importance and relevance on earth.
Existence in distinction and excellence is existence in importance and relevance on earth. When you exist in distinction and excellence, you are relevant and important. Nobody can make demeaning comments like: “Don’t mind him. Don’t mind her,” about you. This is because you have what it takes for people to mind you. If you exist in distinction and excellence, nobody can claim ignorance of your existence (Matthew 5:14). For example: before the completion of the Glory Dome (the international headquarters of Dunamis Church along the Airport Road, Abuja, Nigeria), I told someone that there is no way a person would pass through the airport road and claim ignorance of the building. I told the person that even if someone is blind, when he comes there, he would feel something because of the radiating glory of God flowing from the Glory Dome, to the glory of the Almighty alone.
Beloved, existence in distinction and excellence means, you are noticeably important to your generation.
I counsel you: make the choice to live in such a way that your family members, relations, friends and even enemies cannot claim ignorance of your importance and relevance on earth to the glory of God.
Remember this: Existence in distinction and excellence means existence that makes a difference on earth.
Go through today’s study again.
Refuse to live a life of irrelevance and indifference.
Make up your mind to be known for something good, something remarkable and outstanding in your generation.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You make my life count on earth. Help me to be relevant to You and my generation, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
