Holy Ambition and the Church’s Mission

Romans 15:14-33                 August 23, 2015                 Link for audio/video/manuscript

Great ambition is the passion of a great character when our character is forged in the furnace of God’s will for our lives that we would live out and share the good news that God sent his only begotten Son into the world to die for the sins of those who receive him as Lord and Savior - so we might be forgiven, rescued, redeemed and restored back into the relationship with God we were all created for at the beginning of creation. Yes, we will face opposition and rejection when we pursue the holy ambition of the church’s mission to love God and love each other and make disciples and be witnesses and glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ with one unified voice together, but God still miraculously answers prayer, and He will do so when God, rather than ourselves, is the goal. May the God of peace be with us all. Amen!
