Unlimited: Where Christ is Not Known
Dec 1, 2023 250
It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known (Romans 15:20a).
When I was a teenager, my ambition was to have a body that rippled with muscle, and a lovely six-pack to match. That was before I realised that I was much better at working out with my brain than my body!
But now, I’ve discovered the greatest ambition of all! It’s ambition that is within the reach of all of us. It is to preach the Gospel where Christ is not known. It is good to preach the Gospel to those who already know Christ. But the only purpose of doing that is to encourage and equip them to share the Gospel where Christ is not known.
When you make it your ambition to preach the Gospel where Christ is not known, that’s the greatest ambition you can ever have.
This must be the greatest and all-consuming ambition of every follower of Jesus Christ! Not all of us can preach, but we can all share the Gospel! Sharing the Gospel isn’t just done with words. It’s all about what others see that you put first in your life, in terms of your energy, talents, relationships, and money.
When you make it your ambition to preach the Gospel where Christ is not known, that’s the greatest ambition you can ever have. It’s the most fulfilling ambition. It’s an ambition that will satisfy you for all eternity! There’s nothing greater that you could ever achieve in this life!
What are the greatest ambitions of your life? Does sharing the Gospel outrank them all? If not, why not?
