Excel :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-up #33

Even so, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be for the edification of the church that you seek to excel. 1 Corinthians 14:12

Excel. don’t hold back. Go for it. Do the best you can in the ministry that you are called to, but… But not for yourself.

Do it for others.

Do it for the church.

Do it so others can go out and excel as well.

Run with them — your brothers and sisters in Christ. Cheer them on. Push them forward. Pray with them and for them. Praise with them. Proclaim with them. Lift the name of Jesus higher and higher together.

Be the church with the church. Love the church. And you will excel.



As with all #QuietlyThrough posts, this was written while reading quietly through God’s word. If you’re looking for a simple Bible reading plan that moves at an easy pace then the Quietly Through reading plan may be for you.

Only by grace,

  1. One of our pastors just started a series on 2 Corinthians, but he’s been going back into 1 Corinthians quite a bit. He just talked about that passage, but I love your simple way of stating it all. Pinning on my posts worth reading board.
