Excellence: How to Pursue an Excellent Spirit
If you_„Žre honest, you_„Žll admit you want to be promoted in life. You want the benefits of success, influence, and prosperity, and there_„Žs nothing wrong with that. It_„Žs what God wants for you too! Promotion even comes from God, and though relative to what God has called each person to do, it is available to every born-again believer! But even though promotion comes from God, it isn_„Žt God who determines whether you are promoted or not. It_„Žs you. You choose to be promoted by choosing to develop an excellent spirit, and in this book, Andrew Wommack will show you how. Using examples from the lives of Daniel and his friends, and from his own life, Wommack outlines the key characteristics of an excellent spirit including identity in Christ, true humility, full obedience, endurance, and an uncompromising stand with God_„Žs word. In contrast, Wommack also explains the dangers of moral relativity and man-pleasing and how those characteristics often mire believers in a life of mediocrity and impotence. Personal talent, beauty, education and intelligence are also not what produce promotion; it is a devoted relationship with God which, in turn, produces an excellent spirit.
No matter how much money you make or where you live; no matter who your connections are or the color of your skin; it is an excellent spirit that will be the true determiner of your promotion, and that spirit is what Wommack encourages you to pursue in Excellence.
