But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you —see that you also excel in this grace of giving. – 2 Corinthians 8:7 (NIV)
We as the Church must seek to excel in many areas: in our love for others, in our hope for the future, in the way we conduct ourselves and our business in the world. More so than anyone, we are expected to be full of grace and of generosity. We must not only excel, but accelerate, applying more power to the fire within so that in all we do, God is glorified through His Church.
