HOLY AMBITION

ROMANS 15:17-20

17Therefore I glory in Christ Jesus in my service to God. 18I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me in leading the Gentiles to obey God by what I have said and done— 19by the power of signs and wonders, through the power of the Spirit of God. So from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the gospel of Christ.20It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation.

15:20 Paul says that he has “ambition.” Ambition can be a difficult topic for Christians because we see so many bad examples of ambitious people who claw their way to the top. But certainly that isn’t the kind of ambition one sees in Paul. Instead of looking out for himself and working hard for personal advancement, he was ambitious to serve God—for Paul that meant “to preach the gospel where Christ was not known” Are you ambitious for God? Do you want, more than anything else, to please him and to do his will? Ask God for “holy ambition.” Tyndale. Life Application Study Bible

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and the HOLY AMBITION only he can give us.
