Ambition could be defined as the desire to be better and to be the best at what you do. This is one of the core desires that fuels modern society.
Throughout history, many important discoveries have been made because of the unswerving ambition of both men and women. However in the modern and materilalistic world we live in, this ambition, if left unchecked, can do untold damage, to our personal image, our witness for God and the relationships and families we hold dear.
In this thought-provoking discourse the author shows that God allows us to have ambition for a reason, and, indeed, ambition focused in the right way is to be encouraged. Our-God given gift of ambition is often what motivates us to do our best, not for ourselves, but for proclaiming Jesus Christ to the world.
R T Kendall reminds us that our ambition must be brought under the power of God, where it will be used in ways far more amazing than we could possibily dream, for His glory.
