Who here is ambitious? You want to achieve something great in life? The bible says that ambition is good. Furthermore you should have some ambition. Some kind of goal. Some kind of dream that you are working toward. Yes, working towards. Notice the word ‘working’?
Many Christians have no goals, no ambitions. They are lazy, disorganized, cowardly people who are always doing nothing much and criticizing those who are trying to doing something for God.
But for those of us with ambition, how are we achieving them? Judas had ambition. He wanted to be rich and popular. So he stole money from Jesus and He stabbed Jesus in the back. He lost his money in the end, and his life, but he did become popular, just not in the way He wanted. Plus he’s probably burning in the fires of hell right now.
