Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm. Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; for as much as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his GOD. (Daniel 6:3-5)
Are we like Daniel, do we strive for perfection; or do we settle for mediocrity and compromise? What is your goal for the Kingdom? What does the world think of you? Are one of theirs? Of course, if you have never been Born Again as the Bible states, you are still in this world and not a child of the King. In this unredeemed state, you cannot become like Christ, because you have never received Him. You must recognize this spiritual condition, repent and return to GOD.
And Christian, while you are maturing toward Christlikeness, you must be about Kingdom business. Tell others of what Christ has done for you, and what He continues to do.
