Pursuing Godly Ambitions

My ambition has always been to preach the Good News where the name of Christ has never been heard, rather than where a church has already been started by someone else. Romans 15:20

You probably have several ambitions. Professionally, you have your eyes set on a prize—maybe a promotion or ownership of your own business. Personally, you’re striving to become a better leader in your home, and working on taking care of yourself. What about your spiritual ambitions? Where do your spiritual passions lie?

After his conversion, the apostle Paul had his sights set on preaching the Gospel in places where the name of Jesus had never been heard, and he spent the rest of his life doing so. He wasn’t disrespecting the work done in churches started by others. He just left that work to someone else who had a godly zeal for it.

Do you have such clarity of thought? You don’t need a “calling” to pursue most of your godly ambitions. You simply need to acknowledge that it exists deep inside your heart, and then prayerfully seek ways to live it out.

Maybe your ambition is outside of the box—like starting an online Christian news site in your city, or giving away everything you own to the poor, or starting a ministry to mentally ill people who have fallen through the cracks of society. Whatever it is, jump into it.
