January 2, 2018.    Pastor Charles

13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,
14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13-14

There are a lot of limits I personally want to take off my life and I know there are limits that you need to take off your life also. When I talk about limits, I am talking about all kinds of limitations. Limitation is defined as restriction, restraint, barrier, block, and deterrent. There are certain limitations that I cannot possibly mention but you recognize them as limitations in your own life. Stop for a moment and think about the limitations you have allowed in your life.

I made up my mind long ago that I would not accept mediocrity in my life anymore. Contrary to popular opinion, mediocrity is not something that is not good; it is good but it is not the best. To be mediocre is to be average, middle-of- the-road, ordinary and unexceptional. The greatest enemy of best is not bad. The greatest enemy of best is good. Maybe you are in a good place, in a comfortable employment, and you just sit there, saying to yourself, that at the end of the month you will get your one hundred and twenty thousand Naira or better still, four thousand US Dollars. Pastor Nkechi once said that, “Every success and every failure in your life has the potential to limit you.” Shake off the limits and leave that comfort zone. What must you do to shake the limits off, and get beyond where you have reached now?

Confession: Lord, thank You for giving me Your best in the sacrifice of Your Son. You did that so I can live the best life possible. I will shun mediocrity and pursue excellence, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
