Paul’s aspiration and ambition was to represent Jesus well as he lived out his God-given calling. He willingly endured hardship, crossed cultural barriers, and humbly gave all the credit for success to Jesus. Throughout his letters, Paul calls us to do the same. What has God given you to do? What is your aspiration and ambition as you fulfill your God-given calling?
Therefore I glory in Christ Jesus in my service to God. I 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…It 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. —Romans 15:17-18, 20.
Prayer: God, search my motives and cleanse my heart today. Fuel my leadership aspirations with a holy ambition to exalt You only and find my greatest satisfaction in reflecting Jesus as I lead and pray in His name, amen.
