TOPIC : INTRODUCTION TO THE MORE EXCELLENT WAY
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12: 31. But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! We give thanks and praise to God Almighty for His goodness and His mercy towards us all through the month of October! So many of us were launched into the realm of favour as the Lord unveiled the mystery called favour! To God alone be all the glory!
We understand from scriptures that we serve a God who is described as the Excellent God because of His loving kindness!
Psalm 36: 7. How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
God’s name is described also as Excellent : *Psalm 8: 1. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. 9. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth* !
He is also described as being excellent in power.
Job 37: 23. Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.
And because God does excellent things, He dewlls in the realm of excellence! His throne is established in excellence. Hence His way also must be an excellent way!
And as such I welcome you to the month of November as we journey together through the Bible on the theme, THE MORE EXCELLENT WAY!
Fasten your seat belt and prepare your heart for the word of God for you this month.
What then is this more excellent way?
The more excellent way is the way of God. And evidence from the scripture made us to know the way of God is the way of love. God is love personified! Love is one quality that makes Him excellent!
That is God’s nature. And this explains why our love lives are a measure of our knowledge of God:
1 John 4: 8. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
Even our redemption is a product of love :
John 3: 16. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Our opening scripture was picked from a chapter where the subject of spiritual gifts is being discussed in details, then the narrative switched from spiritual gifts to that of the more excellent way and this more excellent way was introduced in chapter 13 of first Corinthians, where an explicit discourse on love was made.
Therefore, the more excellent way is love! Love is the way to victory and a glorious christian life. Love is more excellent than any spiritual gifts, to walk in love is to walk in more excellent way. Once again welcome to November, the month of eleventh hour miracle as you walk in the more excellent way.
Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! Endeavour never to miss heaven, surrender to the Lordship of Jesus today.
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord show me your more excellent way to walk in this month of November in the name Jesus.
– I prophesy the release of grace to walk in the more excellent way in Jesus name
– In this month of November, your life is preserved in your going out and your coming in the name of Jesus.
– You will not be a victim of evil circumstances this month, my God shall order your steps in Jesus name.
