Characteristics of an Excellent Spirit Daniel 6:3Then 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. Daniel 5:12Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and shewing of hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation Daniel always acted with integrity in all he did and we are to do the same. He was honorable in all his ways and had admirable qualities in character Those who have developed in character will excel in Godly values. They will live by God’s principles and will not say one thing but do another. They will seek the Lord about what He wants and will do and say what the Lord tells them as they are led, daily walking in the Spirit . Proverbs 17:27He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit. Those who have an excellent spirit are very fruitful. They excel above the average Christians who seem to be more concerned about the things of this world than pleasing our Father. The fruit of the Spirit it easily seen by all, even outside the church. 2Peter 1:2Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 8For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall. Those of an excellent spirit will hold to a higher standard than the world and even many in the church. It seems the church has lowered its standards drastically. We are to be an example of our Lord Jesus Christ in a way that attracts people to Him. Philippians 1:10That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ.
