There is nothing wrong in being ambitious in God. Many times we feel it is wrong to be ambitious, but this is not true, in as much as it is in God.
As Christians, we need to put our hearts together, and know that we are serving God and not mere men. The Church does not belong to a man but to God. It is God that builds his church by himself. In the book of Matthew, the condition was conversion to being a little child, and being able to humble oneself so as to enter the Kingdom.
Humility is not stupidity, and it doesn’t mean low self esteem. When Jesus says Humility is the greatest, then it is. And in whatever level we get, we must continue to be dependent on God, no matter the anointing.
Deciding to make yourself a vessel unto honor doesn’t confine God to using a man. Every vessel waits on the Lord to bring him out and showcase him. If God has not spoken, don’t move. One of the things the Church is missing is that, we know Jesus as the Savior but yet to know Him as the Lord. The Kingdom of God is not democracy but monarchy. The Lordship of Jesus, takes away our right. And he doesn’t force this Lordship on us. God resists the proud and gives Grace to the humble. God needs us to humble ourselves before Him.
Jesus was not less God. There was nothing in God’s jurisdiction that was not in His, yet, he didn’t think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what. Jesus called God Father, He learnt obedience by the things he suffered. That is one suffering we cannot understand. Being born again is the beginning of our journey but we must be converted in the process. Remaining born again will take us nowhere if we do not go through the process of conversion. May God help us to become as a little child.
