Paul wrote, "Finally then, brethren, we request and exhort you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us instruction as to how you ought to walk and please God (just as you actually do walk), that you excel still more" (1 Thess. 4:1). To "excel still more" is to achieve that which is set in front of you. In our case, Heaven has been set in front of us, and it is up to us to walk in a worthy manner. When I excel, I grow; when I excel still more, I grow and grow and grow
The Excel Still More Bible Workshop is directed toward a deep study of a particular book or topic of the Bible. Our platform is a simple three-step pattern.
1. Learn the text
This section of the study is designed to go through the text in a verse-by-verse fashion, identifying key words, phrases, and verses.
2. Apply the text
In this section, our aim is to make practical application of the text that will serve as a bridge between what we study in the first section and the impact it has in our life.
3. Build off the text
This third section will focus on "faith builders," the additional nuggets we glean from the text that help us grow in our own faith.
Our hope in this great study is simple: to help you learn the text, apply the text, and build a strong faith. Our intent for this book is to provide an easy-to-use resource with reliable resources so you can gain profitable knowledge from the text. As Christians, we want to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, and we pray this resource will be a tool to help us all do that.
