Who can say, “I have kept my heart pure; I am clean and without sin”?
Perfection isn’t the goal – excellence is.
Let’s face it – we’ve all blown it. None of us are perfect. Really… that’s not the goal. As we strive toward living authentic manhood, there are times that we’re going to blow it, but, again, perfection isn’t the goal – excellence is.
Excel means to “exceed in a fixed measure, to abound, to overflow.” To be a FivestarMan is a man in the passionate pursuit of authentic manhood. In other words, as we gain an understanding of the five purposes that are on deposit with us, we’re getting better and better at them. Remember our motto: Champions do daily what the average do occasionally. So, let’s push ourselves to be ever improving.
We all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:8)
Paul is saying that we’re a work in progress as we are being transformed into the image of perfected manhood – namely, Jesus.
