12 Excuses Vs. Excellence!

12 excuses against Excellence

We all carry with us our excuses.  We must learn to teach our excuses the ways of excellence.  Do not ignore your excuses, teach them.  You've got to take them with you and Make them your disciples.   Jesus did!

Simon Peter: Pride  
Andrew:  Measure of Faith
James:  Family genes
John:  Competition
Philip: Intelligence / knowledge
Bartholomew: mediocrity
Matthew: People
Thomas: Doubts
James (son of Alphaeus):  Limitations  
Simon: Zeal
Judas (son of James):  Identity
Judas Iscariot: Money  


Mary:  spiritual warfare
Martha: our works
Lazarus:  Amazing Grace of God

All of which we must face and challenge if we ever want to reach excellence!!
Jesus spoke to his "excuses" talked to them, had fellowship with them, and taught them, daily!  Come with me as I explore Man's 12 excuses against Excellence.   Your twelve excuses are meant to testify to God's awesome work in you life.

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
