The Bible says that we are Royal Priesthood (1Pet. 2:9). We carry more than what an average King on earth carries. There is something about us who are born again Christians; we have our placement in God. Kings may come and go but if we are in Christ, our Excellency is in Christ. You don’t say: ‘Your former excellency’. We are created to be established in the royalty that we have been called into and the privilege has been given to us. When we are born into Christ, we are redeemed from the curse of the law and made joint heirs with Jesus. The promise of Abraham becomes our promise. You don’t labour to become an heir, you walk into it. And so, we are Kings and Queens that have been born into royalty; a royalty that cannot be contested. Therefore, you are royalty.
How are you expected to carry yourself as an Eternal Excellency?
- The type of language that comes out of your mouth matters. Do not speak filthy or useless words. Speak with authority, not with timidity.
- Your mode of dressing counts. Dress as a King/Queen, not shabbily or provocatively.
- The way you eat also matters. Eat with dignity, don’t be seen eating or chewing on the road.
- The way you walk is being watched by people; don’t walk in a scattered manner.
It is said that a book is not judged by its cover but the truth is that there is a way a book looks that will make you not to attempt reading it despite its content or how loaded it is. If the cover is not appealing or the graphics is not interesting, you won’t even start reading the book. So, it is very important that you should be seen as a King and be identified as a Queen.
I see the Lord helping you carry yourself as an eternal excellency in Jesus Name.
