I think this site uses cookies to analyze traffic and for ads measurement purposes. I'm not really sure, I don't do techy stuff. I built it on Google's Blogger platform, ask them. I put this here because some IDIOT BONEHEADS thought you needed new laws. Here're some links if you want more information.

Excellence


Excellence

Philippians 3:8 WBT

Yes doubtless, and I count all things [to be] loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them [to be] dung, that I may win Christ...

  • Websters 1828 Dictionary defines “Excellence” or “To Excel” as:
  •  To go beyond
  • To surpass in good qualities
  • To Outdo
  •  To have good qualities, or to perform meritorious actions, in an unusual degree; to be eminent, illustrious, or distinguished.


  • Thesaurus.Com expounds on “Excellence” as:
  • Superiority, distinction, good, merit, nobility, perfection, quality, significance, value, virtue, worth, rightness, noblesse.


We find then that excellence is defined both in the act of excellence and of being excellent in nature/quality. We see the high quality work of a craftsman as a work of excellence; the work of a Mozart or Bach as a musical work of excellence. We also see that the person themselves can be considered of high quality or value. Thus a person of royal heritage can be called “You excellency”.
Passion can be defined as: “An educated decision that something is worth everything!”
Jesus the Anointed One is worth our every pursuit. He left all he was to spend time on earth and a devils hell to redeem us from the curse. He calls us a treasure hidden in a field. He gave all to purchase us! So Paul tells us:

Philippians 3:8 WBT

Yes doubtless, and I count all things [to be] loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them [to be] dung, that I may win Christ,

Therefore we must spend all our life, time, talent, treasure: Pursing His life in us, His calling in us, His vision for us. For Paul states here that The Anointed One and Anointing of the Anointed One is worth more than anything we pursued beforehand! Anything in our lives that keeps us from pursing Him is worth-less.
This pursuit of the excellence of God permeates and saturates our lives. It is not a Sunday issue. It is a daily, moment by moment issue. Excellence in Christian life requires putting aside certain things to pursue other, more valuable, things. As Paul also taught, now that I am a man, I must put away childish things.  Every degree of excellence we attain will most likely require that we put away or put aside something that has held us back from this level of excellence until now. Is your pursuit of sports and Monday night football worth more than your marriage? Is your career worth more than you child? Is your promotion worth more than your prayer time with God?


As life progresses you will either move toward or away from you calling and purpose. To move away from your calling and purpose is to move toward distraction, delay, and default. It is to engage in a path to spiritual bankruptcy. To move toward your purpose is to move toward clarity, passion, and pursuit. To move toward your calling and pursue your purpose brings all of life’s many options into sharp focus. When you prioritize life in regards to purpose all other options reset and reorder on their own. It becomes clear which items must go and which can stay. When pursuing a passionate purpose the little things can start to become a hindrance and they must go. But you will want them to go, as they will irritate your passion.  These things just naturally fall off as they no longer fit in your pursuit.

This excellence then will consume every part of your life. Your pursuit of the excellence of God causes you to be a better husband, worker, boss, voter, politician, leader, follower, church member, and church leader. It will cause you and me to be more interested in feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the lonely. I will be interested in the strangers, orphans, widows, and those in prisons. You will become one who is known for having a Heart Wide Open to the men and women God created and loved and died for.
This doesn’t mean that we have perfectedour walk. It simply means that we are aiming at and striving after perfection. You will be able to say: Follow Me! As I follow Christ! We’ll all head toward perfection together.

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see
http://www.darrellwolfe.com/2018/06/flavia-antoinette-wolfe-and-baby-wolfe.html?m=1

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

A Memorial Message of Hope

My wife, Flavia Antoinette Wolfe, passed into Glory on 06/25/2018. This is the message/word God gave me.Dealing with Tragedy
When tragedy strikes, we often compelled to ask questions and express doubts:
• Why?
• What if… a thousand what-ifs…
• If only…
• I should have/shouldn't have
• Can God really be good?
• Can the Bible really be true?

The answer to why is simple, hard, and totally unsatisfying: This World Is Broken. 

Sin entered the world, and through sin, death. BUT, God. So many powerful stories have a "but God" moment. Jesus came, he conquered death, and through him, our sorrow is lessened, and a drop of joy lies underneath.

"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 New King James Version (NKJV)

You WILL have tribulation. That's just as much a promise as anything else in the bible. Trouble is here on this planet for all of us because of…

The World's Broken Babylonian Financial System is Crashing! Praise God!

So, things are crazy in the world.

The United States of America, God's Country, is NOT ending. We are NOT seeing the failure of capitalism, so to speak. We ARE seeing the death of socialism and man's twisting of God's systems. The USA will arise out of this financial mess and help to bring the The Lord Jesus back in an end times revival awakening to the world.

It is interesting to see how crazy the world has become though. World leaders are confused and there are over 100 world financial leaders that have stepped down recently... This shows how confused the world is about why their system isn't working.


I got the following in an email:


I believe the total is up to 110 now within the last 4 weeks…

A little ditty I was singing in the kitchen...

I can't recall the words to...

This song that's stuck in my head...

I must know the words, to this stupid song, or I can't go to bed...

It's the Circle of Life...

Oh yeah, that's right, the Lion King...

It's Elton John... At the height of his career...

Good Night!


Shalom: Live Long and Prosper!
