Ambition and Faith - Luke 22:24-25 | Follower of One

What is your goal? Is there a goal for your Christian walk? Notice how the disciples argued about who would be first in the kingdom. Do you ever think about where you’ll be in Heaven? Do you ever wonder what it means to be great in eternity?

Back when I first became a Christ-follower, I think many of us had a goal to avoid hell. We didn’t even expect there to be much more on this side of eternity. Belief in Jesus got us a “get-into-heaven-free” card. We carried that card and did our best not to lose it. But it stayed in our wallet or back pocket. We only took it out when we needed it.

But my desire was different. I disliked my job and how I spent my time. My hope was that my life would matter for something. And when that something became eternal, I was hooked. I started trying to figure out how to experience the joy of my salvation all the time. But my job and my commitments were an obstacle, or so I thought.

How much of your waking energy every day moves you toward the goal of your relationship with Jesus? That’s what I think the disciples are doing here. They really want to be as close as possible to Jesus, experiencing his friendship, love, peace and joy. But its not position, or where we sit.
