Spiritual ambitiousness is the quest to be spiritually relevant by seeking to establish oneself prematurely, when it is very clear circumstances are less mature for such independence. It is the false assumption that one can do it on their own without help from others. It is the urgent quest for recognition and favour within the spiritual sphere. It seeks to promote ones self rather than God, but it disguise itself as seeking urgently to finish a task for God.
It wants all the attention for itself. Because of this it does not want to work with established structures less it might lose its name and significance to the superior who is clearly much establish than them.
They peak as quickly as they commenced for they have no established roots and foundations of organisation nor of an understanding of what it is that they wants to achieve apart from anything that will give them name and fame.
What is pushing your ministry?
What is directing your path ?
What makes you feel you should start you church from the one you belong to?
Why do you want to leave the choir and go solo?
Why can’t you just write for the church and let the church bear the title?
Why must you lead and not support others?
What is all the noise about?
Remember Paul planted, Apollos watered but God gave the increase.
It is not of him who plant or watered who is important but of God who makes all things grow.
Our motives should be how we can help for all things to grow for the masters purpose . It is not about stardom but it is about getting the work fully and totally done. Our joy should be that we played our part in that effect .Amen.
