Inside out 89: Rescuing Ambition

05.24.11 | Kurt Goff

Book Conver: Rescuing AmbitionAmbition.  It’s a challenging subject to tackle as a follower of Jesus.  We all know ambition can lead us to some pretty bad places, places where God doesn’t want us to go, but that isn’t the whole story.

Pastor Dave Harvey reminds us that there really is such a thing as “Godly ambition”.  The challenge is how to recognize the difference between God’s kingdom and ours.  It’s not always easy to do, but it’s worth the effort to get a handle on this because God has ambitions for us to do the work he’s called us to do,  with courage,  faith,  prayer and dependence on Him.

Rescuing Ambition isn’t just a book, it’s an on-going conversation.
