God Almighty is the best at everything. He is the Best Lord, Best Comforter, Best Father, Best Motivator, Best Friend, Best Guide, Best Husband… And as His representatives here on Earth, we should also standout as the best at everything, so that those around us can see who He is through who we are.
The problem is that many don’t try to do this, or have lost this vision over time. These are the best people in Church and with services directly linked to the spiritual realm, but fall short in their daily roles as parents, sons, husbands, wives, employees, bosses… They seek to improve themselves as servants of God, but forget to improve as servants to those around them. For this reason, it is not surprising that their faith loses credit with those closest to them.
We must remember that, to efficiently fulfill the mission that was given to us, which is to win souls, it is essential that we be considered a reference to those who do not know God, so they become interested in knowing Him. After all, who would want to serve the Eternal God of a father that is distant, a son that is always getting into trouble, a careless husband, a nagging wife, a lazy employee or an unfair boss? Who would want to learn about the faith of someone that behaves worse or just like them? The Most High, in His Infinite Wisdom, advises us regarding this:
Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5.16
But, how can you be the best at everything? God gives us a tip in Colossians 3.17-24:
And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus… Whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men… for you serve the Lord Christ.
This is, we should behave in front of others as we would in front of God, treat them with the same dedication we treat God and do to them as if we were doing for God! And all this in the Name of Jesus, aware that He is receiving the souls we are winning, through our testimony, in His Arms!
To be the best at everything is not arrogance, pride, conceit or vanity. It shows the DNA of the Almighty running through our veins. To be the best at everything is a Christian duty.
