Dear Christian: Is Your Christianity One of Excellence Or Excuse Making?

Written by Doug Giles on May 18, 2018

Sad fact: some believers shouldn’t be trusted with running the Tilt-a-Whirl at the traveling carnival, let alone running the nation.

Excellence is not an act, but a habit.

How well to the Christians in your life stack up with the example we see in the life of Biblical Daniel and his 3 buddies? Are their lives marked with pronounced levels of self-mastery? Are they ten times more excellent than their peers across the board?

Better question: Are You?

Because that’s the kind of Christian that really makes waves in whichever pond they find themselves chucked into.

Are you the kind of person who gets results? How’s your integrity? What’s your word worth?

Are you competent and hardworking?

If you didn’t step outside the Christian ghetto as portrayed on ‘Christian Television’, you might not think that matters.

How well has that been working out for the Church and society at large? Take a good look at the last 50 or sixty years in particular — but it goes a lot further back than that — and ask yourself is that a trend we want to see continue?

Get Doug Giles’ new book:

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
