Every one of us is ambitious for something or someone. (Yep, that includes you.) But too few of us have thought biblically about ambition.
What is it that He wants us to Pursue? What is worthy of all that effort??
Whatever it is that we are pursuing in life — a successful career, a strong family, or an effective ministry — matters to God. And so does the reason that we are pursuing it.
We chase what we love, don’t we? We give our lives for something and spend a lot of energy doing it! But we want to make sure that what we are pursuing is God’s plan for us.
I want you to come to a conference to consider our Ambitions for the King. The Summit is a gathering of over 250 people (so far) in Gatlinburg, TN between Christmas and New Years to challenge our hearts about our pursuits and His Glory.
He has given us a command, but too often we are not enflamed with enthusiasm in pursuit of what he has called us to. Why is that?
If you have a sense that there is more that the Lord has for you in His plan — that there is something beyond the daily grind — and wish you could put your finger on it, I promise that the Summit is a great place for you to be.
It is NOT a way to make us all feel bad about not doing enough, but rather a time to look into the Goodness of God and the Glory of His commands.
Go to http://bcwe.org/events/our-generation-summit/ to find out more about the schedule and how to register, and REGISTER TODAY if you haven’t already.
I along with about 20 other missionaries will be speaking to stir our affections for the King’s Command. Don’t miss it.
