May the Church strive for a spirit of excellence. Daniel had a spirit of excellence because he did not compromise his integrity or his faith for the favor of others. He stood-up for what was right, and he challenged what was wrong. Even in the Lion’s Den - it was Daniel’s faith which saved him and continued to promote him into higher places.
May the Church arise to higher places, and may the spirit of excellence linger upon the body of Christ.
higher places - an elite place of influence such as government, entertainment, media, visual arts, etc.
spirit of excellence - integrity (how a person behaves when no one is looking)
God is asking all believers to maintain a spirit of excellence, so He can promote us to higher places, provide more opportunities, and open doors that no man can shut.
